I have a DIY Project I am completing for which the base is made of Northwest Alder Wood.
I want to stain it pitch black preferably with a little shine if possible.
I am completely useless that this sort of thing and don't have a lot of spare time.
http://www.bottlehead.com/smf/index.php/topic,3480.0.html is an example.
Here is another http://www.bottlehead.com/smf/index.php/topic,2519.0.html
I am just not sure what the equivalent products in NZ would be.
Anyone able to advise?
