Hey guys, thanks for the nice comments. As far as staining goes, I have to do some test pieces because I don't really know how to do it. Also, I am going to College for Furniture Builders ticket, and a carving class to carve claw feet for furniture - I'm sure I will learn something about staining and finishing there. If you have any advice from the seasoned professionals - like what color of stain looks good on light wood, or any application techniques, it would be much appreciated. Thanks again.

Keep posting!

Nice. I think I see a tiki with claw feet in your future. Like the couch with tiki feet idea too. The new tiki is lookin' very clean and really nice. Please post again when stained. You should get some good info from the instructer on wood staining.
