Thanks! I think so too! Its got the right balance I need.

(Gunna re-share it since we're onto page 3 now. lol)

Okay, I think I've found the color Im going to go with!

It's actually a hybrid of roughly 50/50 Bright & Perfect red for dye & 65/35 for tone coats.

It's the bottom-right sample.
Its got plenty of depth, without being burgundy or too bright.. :thumb:

Thanks! I'm really happy with it too! It's gunna be absolutely gorgeous once its all stained, toned, & cleared, esp if I can manage to match the colors, thankfully i have these sample strips to make sure I get it down perfectly.  :thumb:

Still hoping weather clears up this week like its supposed to so I can cut & flatten the veneer to start making progress again.
The gulf & atlantic have been incredibly active with storms the last few weeks, hopefully this week we'll finally get some good weather soon. *crosses fingers*

FINALLY!  A day without 100% humidity and rain!

Got the first 2 sheets of veneer flattening under plenty of clamps & pressure. Ill check them tomorrow to change the paper towels and hopefully finish drying it out perfectly flat.
