Topic tags/keywords: staining danish oil

I have stained some freshly sanded, spalted pecan with several coats of Watco Danish Oil. I started with a coat of Golden Oak but then decided I wanted it darker and applied a coat of Walnut. It still has a kind of yellow look to it and I am wondering if the best strategy will be to use a polyurethane plus stain coat to darken it a bit more. Alternatively, I could apply a coat of surface stain and then coat with polyurethane.

Any oil based stain will work. I like ZAR. After several days of drying, top with either oil or waterborne poly.

May I ask why poly? Is it a high use project?

Dealer’s choice if he wants a film finish with sheen or more protection.
