Sapele counter stain? - Hello, I'll be getting a Sapele counter top for my island. Since I've never seen how stain takes on Sapele, could you tell me what shade was used for this counter? It would give me a better idea of what shade of stain I need to choose. I've only seen someone do one with just tongue oil and no stain. Thank you :)

thank you, now that surprises me because any Espresso stain I have at home is darker, but I guess it's the red in the Sapele that help to give it a warmer tone. I stain my own picture frames for my artwork, so have a number of cans in my garage in different shades. All my life no matter where I lived, I've always loved and tried to buy furniture with warmer toned woods.
