I think PEDDRO, the guy who originally posted this one way back, was just listing that as a suggested format. You probably wouldn't get a "vintage" look that way. Stain is very kosher for palm wood - it soaks it right up. If you use varnish, remember that it has a yellowish or golden tone, and it will tend to brown up your reddish tones and make your lighter stains look a bit on the "golden" side.
