I picked up some Curly Red Oak the other day and I need some help as far as what to use to make this curl POP for me . The other issue is that the boards are not from the same tree nor are they the same color : (
As much as I hate to stain or dye my projects , I’m afraid that it will be necessary to do that to achieve a uniform color this time.
A friend recommended TransTint dye mixed with BLO to POP the grain and perhaps a Shellac on top of that . What are your thoughts on these matters ?
-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
