The last table stain color is actually a mix between two colors. I experimented with Rustoleum on a previous build and had decent results, so I mixed two colors, black cherry and kona. He had wanted a dark tint with just a touch of red. I use minwax water based stains when I need it to dry really quick. They also have a very high selection of colors. I like it the best for finishing and a clean job. For poly, I use minwax semi gloss, and I've also started to use Rustoleum spray poly. It's got great coverage, easy to apply and the finish has come out great. This is what I used on the last table in this post. I've kinda gotten away from the wipe on polys in recent builds just for speed and ease of use. Hope that info helps..
