    This is my Mayones with a Ovangkol (amazakoe) body. The wood is stained, but as you see it wears off from use.
    Honestly, I would not stain it. If you use dark teakoil, this may absorb a bit and darken the tone slightly.

    So many responses here - thank you all for your valued input. I'm feeling a lot of love here for the Thumb!

    Also shout out to @Toepfer for the staining examples - very interesting
