well, advice may be an afterthought now. i have an old danish piece that is veneered with teak. i planned to stain/poly with minwax ebony satin. sanded, wiped, wiped on first coat and it looked fine. it needed a few more coats but everything looked in order. used 000 steel wool in between coats with a wipe down as well. 3rd coat on the piece is not getting darker. so i had an epiphany…because it is a veneer and not a ‘solid’ piece of wood, it can only absorb so much stain/pigment. and this is as dark as it gets, could this be correct?

thanks in advance for any wisdom provided.
