How should i stain and finish a cross section of wood?
So I've shaped and sanded a cross section of an ash tree.
The wood has been sanded to a smooth finish but that's usually as far as i take my wood working.
I want to use this to cover a base of an old desk lamp that lost its original base over time.
I want to use a dark stain and a gloss finish but I'm unsure as to what type of products should be used and how the process of finishing should go.
