I am finishing a coffee table made from 150 year old pine, the growth rings are very tight. If I use a transtint dye do I need a wood conditioner for blotch control?
Thank you

Yes, I would, always on pine.

Try it on an unseen area of the bottom…

Conditioners, seal coats, and washcoats can prevent a dye from penetrating. Mask off a square, do half with conditioner. Dye the entire square and see what works best.
