I could use thoughts on how to get common color/tone on a project which has wood from two different trees. Specifically, I am using African Mahogany, some of which is darker in tone (color??) and some lighter. Will a dye or a pigment stain do better to get all the wood closer in tone prior to finishing. Since it is a desk I intend to use a hard varnish or polyurethane as a final finish.
