I did a trial run of my shelving units before staining the wood. The other lesson that I learned was that I should have stained and varnished my required strip wood at the same time as it took awhile to replicate a matching stain even though I had written down my proportions. I think the maple veneer and the basswood stripwood absorbed it a little differently so the colour was off until I finally got it right!
