    I will be making a dining table top using shop sawn myrtlewood veneer. The wood has nice brown and blue/gray tones but too many yellow tones for the customer so I would like to tone down the yellow. It would be OK to enhance the other tones in the process but it is also OK if they stay as they are. Reading about colors, it seems that violet is used to neutralize yellow but I don’t know if this applies to my problem or how to go about it. I usually use Minwax Polycrylic or Polyurethane for my finishes (depending on the wood), and try to avoid dyes and stains, but I think this will require more than my usual skill set. Any suggestions?
