Well my chesse16 hull looked Great, sanded with 350, smooth as a baby's bottom, but I wanted some color, something different.
So last night I stained It with minwax WATER based stain, rosewood, doen't look bad but it raised the grain, and after wiping it down, it is a little darker than I wanted, and with the application of the glass and epoxy, I fear it will get darker yet! Almostlooks painted BROWN.
Do I leave it, and appreciate the beautiful dark mahogany color.
Or do I slightly sand to remove the raised grain, and lighten it up?
It will lighten it up, won't it?
Oh Bother, Poo
