Thanks for the reply. I did a couple of stain tests. I started with Watco black walnut Danish oil. It’s worked very well for me before on oak. But not on this wood. It blotched.

I suspect the answer would be a dye stain but I have no dyes. And I suspect to get a good look I’ll need the pores to take some color. A washcoat/wood conditioner will make it end up lighter.

It’s nice wood but it’s natural color is quite boring. It needs some coloring. I intend to use Waterlox varnish as the top coat so that might help darken it a bit.
