I have solid beech worktops in my kitchen, over the years they have been oiled and reoiled, I have some stains on them from where the kids have left drinks to stand. Could I stain them darker? If so, how?
Beech is a very light wood and of course it can be darkened but depending how much oil you have put on it and how much it has penetrated the grain could be a problem so staining it make sure you use an oil based stain. You could find you get different tones depending what staines you already have from the kids accidents. There are some very good web pages on wood stains, good luck
