Tim...before you stain the whole thing...get yourself a small can of ebony stain...use a Qtip and trace out some of those grain veins. Esp the ones that are stacked up and double back. You can let it soak in on a few of them or wipe it off after 20-30 seconds. ..you can do a couple...4 or 5 or even more of them if you choose to. Let it dry in good 12-24 hrs, THEN hit it up with your stain of choice. Some of the mahogany's ( reds and browns) or the special walnuts might give you that look your after.
