Good Taste In Staining

Oak, mahogany, cherry, black walnut, and like imitations are always good in an artistic sense, but imitations of unfamiliar woods mean nothing to the average person. The too common mistake is to try to imitate oak by staining pine or poplar or birch. It may, with good effect, be stained to imitate cherry.
Oregon pine, or some light-colored wood, with a strong contrasting grain may be used for staining in imitation of oak.
