    Folks,
    I’m in the process of making a few boxes to give as Christmas gifts I’m using some pale white pine.
    I’m intending to stain them a darker colour, (mahogony- ish), then shellac and wax.

    Should I do the staining BEFORE the glue up, or will the stain inhibit the glue performance?

    Thanks in advance,

    Regards,

    Matt

    glue up than stain.

    i believe Paul describes why to do it this way in the dovetail boxes project video when he is putting on the shellac.
