staining Brazilian Mahogany Exterior Door
I have the same question, but it appears this was never fully answered.
I bought a Brazilian Mahogany door from ETO. They told me the exact species is Cedro Arana which means nothing to me as I don't have much knowledge on wood species and the proper staining method.
Questions: What is the proper staining method? I am staining to get a darker finish - Minwax's "Dark Walnut". With this wood species do I need to first apply a wood conditioner?
theomandel, did you have blothiness issues? Did you use a conditioner before staining?
