Good afternoon all,:yes:
I would like to build a box with the frame ebonised (sp) with the lid, inlay, and feet done in oak stained cherry.
I was hoping you guys could give me a heads up on the best products & what have you think is the best way to ebonise (sp) oak wood:huh:

I prefer to use a black aniline dye. Mohawk finishing products sells in online in power form which you can mix with alcohol obtained locally. It's also available premixed which is called Ultra Penetrating Stain but has hasmat fees ordering it. You could also use Transtint dye or even printers ink.
