Custom Stain mixes -- my favorite recipe for most woods

Hello. New guy here. I'll do the "introduction thing" elsewhere, but just so it makes sense that I'm posting stuff that's long and detailed: yeah, I've done published articles before, in other hobbies. With apologies for the relatively-long (by I'net standards) length of this, I'll jump into my tip's write-up. - - - -This post is about a specific "recipe" or formula I came up with, over the years, through experimentation.

Profile Information

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Various researches -- mentions from books, Gitty's site, etc.
How many instruments have you built so far?
None -- so far! But I've only known about CBGs for 2 months
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
Hard to say, because I find a lot of individual things interesting about it. It's cool that so many books exist (Sutton's, Jehle's, Orr's, etc.) and I'm happily reading all of those, for now. I do like how artsy what I'm seeing sometimes is; and the idea of making music is inviting, too.
