Good Evening Jocks!
I’m looking for some real-world experience here. I’m getting ready to start a captain’s bed for my girlfriend with storage baskets underneath. It will be made from red oak with a few panels made from red oak ply. She has requested it to be “dark”, so I need some good suggestions on a stain(brand and color). I built a headboard for one of her boys, and a wall shelf for another…..I used dark walnut Watco on both, and neither turned out as dark as she or I was hoping….....thoughts????? I see General Finishes makes an “espresso”, maybe that will work?
