If you want to get a nice finish, you usually die it black then sand that back so its bare wood. Then you die it the desired color you want. Then laquer it up. The black is so the quilt really comes out.

I haven't done it before though, so don't hold me to that.

Sorta. If you dye a top black, sand it back and then dye it yellow what do you expect to get? Green. Remember that black is made mainly from blue.

Keep in mind you need a quilted maple top to do a 'quilt finish'. Make sure you practice on scrap too so you can see how the top dyes will interact with your darker dyes
