Default Re: Spirit dye reccomendations?

Grain raising is kind of independent of what finish you use. Sanding, or scraping, or planing always mashes the wood fibres over. As soon as you apply a finish, it soaks into the mashed fibres and causes them to pop up.

I tend not to use wood dyes. I prefer different types of French Polish (Pale, blonde, button etc) to give the colour, or different colours of wax polish.

What wood is it?
