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:

Steel wool soaked in vinegar. After 24-72 hours, remove steel wool and run your solution through a coffee filter to remove metal fragments. Biggest thing you need to do is wash the steel wool in acetone first to remove the oils, otherwise it won't rust. YouTube will show you how easy and effective it is.
