the only way i know of to keep the wood feel is to use something like danish oil (which does come in a limited number of stained varieties), and that’s because it doesn’t build a film like poly or water-based finish does, also, it doesn’t offer much in the way of protection. What I do with pine is stain it, apply topcoat, lightly sand with 220, apply another coat, sand with 320, and on and on until the last coat, which i wet sand with 1000, then 2000, using water with water-based finish, or mineral spirits/mineral oil with poly/varnish, which feels just as good to me once it’s all said and done.
