MN3 The staining darkens wood to taste...not necess, but it does seal wood.
Shape is = to other dagger or rudder (which I did) Glassing may also darken wood, but the glassing is transparrent and the wood shows through...leave trailing edges a bit thick and sand-carfully to feather.
The lead edge or luff can be less fine. I did rudder and had to lengthen and it does and looks fine.
Leave places better for having been there; respect others,
