Why is my Stickley finish darker than the last time I did it?
I’ve done a number of projects in the past (using qswo) where I was able to match the finish of a store bought Stickley chair. I use a TransTint dye mixture followed by Watco Danish oil dark walnut. This time, the finish is coming out too dark. Could it be:
a) the nature of the particular pieces of qswo I’m using for this project?
b) I applied too much dye stain because I thought it wasn’t covering the wood?
c) Something else?
Will I have to sand off the finish and start again?
