Finish information: The stain used on this project consisted of 1 part J.E. Moser Cherry Amber Maple dye (water-based) in 1 quart of warm water. It was finished with wiping varnish. Note: We actually recommend using an oil stain rather than the water-based option noted. It was difficult to get consistent results without blotching with the water-based dye. We re-did several parts of project to get everything right.
