i am not a woodworker but came accross your site through a web search and after viewing the wood whisperer’s video about a mahogany stain, I thought maybe one of could help…
I purchased a used bedroom set by Gibbard with a dark mahogany stain under nitrocellulose lacquer. The finish on the ends of the bedposts has been rubbed off and I don’t want to refinish the whole piece. Another web site mentioned that you shouldn’t use lacquer over an oil based stain ( although the wood whisperer did). Is this right? Can I use a water based stain after it has dryed really well before applying lacquer. I don’t want to get into dye stains as it sounds too complicated.
Anybody have any simple suggestions or now a dye that match the Gibbard mahogany stain?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
