Stain for maple furniture

JanH's picture

We have a bedroom set in unfinished brown maple, and are now wondering what the best way is to finish it. Should we stain it, or simply clear coat it with varathane? If stain, can anyone suggest a stain they have used on maple that gives a natural looking finish?
