Since I love the Russian Red stocks here is what I did after researching the various processes.

I used McCormick RED food coloring.

I put on 2-3 coats per wood staining others have talked about on nice clean prepped wood.

Let dry for a couple of days, polish lightly with 0000steel wool. Use tack rag to remove any residue.

Apply Minwax clear gloss Polyurethane building up coats. Lightly steel wool and tack rag when you think you are near where you want to be finish wise.

My wood looks like it's a 3 D finish very deep. I'll try and post photos here.
