I would get yourself some Mohawk medium dark walnut stain and be done with it. A quart goes a long way and you can order on line I believe. Years ago tried minwax and had problems also.

Amazing work, as usual! Funny how the camera just cannot capture the depth of detail in that veneer. In person I bet that wood looks like a wood version of a hologram, where you can just see right into it as it moves as you change your viewing angle.

Hey Fred, I'm just curious as to what you use to adhere the new veneer and how you get the new veneer to cooperate? Is it the adhesive that's the trick?

Good question , I use yellow tight bond glue. I Apply thin layer of glue with a semi soft rubber roller on both surfaces that your wanting to glue and let dry or flash off meaning dry to the touch not wet any more. Then place veneer where you want it and iron on with standard iron, the heat will unlock the glue and weld the two pieces together. You can get the roller at veneer supplies store online. I don't use contact cement on any thing.
