Black stain on Oak
I'm hoping to stain my red oak peninsula cabinets black...or a black with a deep brown tint. I've been "practicing" to see if I can achieve the finish I want, but think I need a more highly pigmented stain. I've been working with Minwax in ebony - and after 7 coats am getting "close" to a black color.
Is this to be expected or are there products that will allow me to achieve a deep color in fewer layers.
