    IMG_0159.JPG Too dark and the tint is too brown for burnt pine (burnt pine is very yellow, pic as reference). I would guess an overly conditioned dark oak.

    So hard to tell with batch variations and lighting it could be any of the three. I posted a pic a while back of make ups in doak, burnt pine, and hazel. The differences were noticeable when side by side however on an island its much more difficult to tell.

    I think someone posted a while back. Have EG do it. That'd be the general consensus.

    Even in store there is a marked variation in tone for the Dark Oaks on display , and for that matter the ones that come out to be tried on. I had to try on quite a few Berkleys and made a few trips to the store before I settled on the one I got. Even this one was much darker and dull on purchase, but after a couple coats of wax the dark dull layer on top was removed and a nice bright shoe revealed.

    Never mind that it's still warm and sunny, fall is Galway time:

    Burnt Pine Antique is great if you are lucky to get the right batch. Otherwise you will end with bandage coloured shoes you will hate.
