I was using Minwax Sedona Red stain on my Bulgy AK handguards. I've only applied one coat so far. It looks great, except for the lower HG. The wood grain doesn't show through the stain very well, and I wonder what the best way to deal with this is. I was thinking about waiting to see what it looks like tomorrow, and then sanding it and redoing the stain, but I'm not sure if this would work. All the wood furniture was bleached before I stained it (not sure if that matters). I then thought about adding Tung oil to the stained wood. I also thought about just adding the shellac that I planned to use as a sealant anyway. Would that help? What suggestions do you guys have? Thanks!
