The Johnson Chair Company produced furniture until the mid 70's, from what I remember. Oak can be grain filled or not. Without filling, there is a look and feel to the wood showing off its grain. Any of the Oaks I've used were very easy to stain and finish. They take well to oil base stains and dye stains.

I would use an NGR alcohol base stain (methanol). It can be darkened with re-application of stain.
