Need stain suggestion
I've done a lot of woodworking, but when it comes to finishing, I'm a rookie.
I'm building new cabinets for my bathroom lavatory sinks. They're what I would call shaker style doors...T&G stile and rail joinery with flat panel doors. I'm making them from riftsawn red oak (trying to avoid the flat grain) and riftsawn red oak plywood for the door panels.
I'd like to avoid what I usually do, which is Minwax stain and polyurethane. I'd much rather go with a rubbed-oil look in a dark honey color. I tried tung oil on a scap but it doesn't add enough color.
Can you all recommend a product or procedure that will not look all glossy, preferably an oil-stain of some sort???
