Good looking table. The iron mixture works great as just a stain, but by itself you never get consistent results. It definitely adds a color look to projects. Oak is a good one to react with it due to the natural tannin content. One piece you can have turn almost black, and another grey, even if cut from the same tree. With the dual mix process you get the same results no matter the wood, even cheap pine. Oak just looks far better due to the grain.
