Is there a recommended technique for staining doug fir? We have a new doug fir entry door that I would like to stain, but I haven't been pleased with the stain samples I've made. I tried a few techniques:
1) water based lt. oak dye, dark walnut oil stain, shellac seal coat, finisher's glaze
2) shellac 1# wash coat, dark walnut oil stain, finisher's glaze
unfortunately the brown paint technique looks the most even so far; the grain lines are very tight on the door so it might stain better, but my sample board has more figure.
Thanks for the feedback,
