Response to Saw the brownelles but was iffy

I use Fiebings, which is alcohol based, on soft woods like the maple and birch Daisy 753/853stocks. I thin it with denatured alcohol starting with about a 1:4 dye to alcohol ratio so it doesn't go on too dark. Easier to go darker with additional coats than lighter by re-sanding wink.gif I get a nice tone with the dark red, medium brown and a drop or two of black (literally a drop or 2 - I use plastic pipettes to control the amount of dye that goes into the mixture).
