Multi step staining is a unique staining process where wood dyes are used on the raw wood and are then covered with stains.  This process gives amazing colors and a depth and warmth that can not be acheived on a finish any other way.  Here are examples of this process on hard Maple which is not easy to stain in a rich color.
