How do you stain cane?
#7
  
Relative had a cane chair the seat had blown out of and asked me to put in a new one. I hadn't done it in years but with a quick you tube search and a visit to ebay I was able to resurrect the skills and materials to get it done.  Problem  is it's practically white compared to the original back. I pulled out all my stains, some penetrating and some gel, but nothing works.  I need some advice from some one who knows what does!
I had a good day. I used every tool I own!

Never had any luck with it.  Even tried soaking the cane in a dye solution before applying.

One of my customers sold dark cane chairs but it was from a toner (finish with color in it) and easily chipped off.

Funny thing is the back has a nice red oak color to it. I'm going to check over at Rockler tomorrow.

That was helpful even though she didn't mention what kind of stain she was using. I finally went with 2 part of Sedona Red to 1 part Red Oak (Minwax Penetrating). The key is no wiping which is counter intuitive when dealing with stain. Brush on one coat. Let dry overnight. Brush on a second coat. Let dry overnight. Spray it with one coat of poly. Not perfect, but close.
