I am going to demo a process I use to ebonize furniture at the Lie-Nielson Tool Event in Peters Valley Craft Center, 19 Kuhn Rd, Layton, NJ 07851. The event will be Friday May 8, 2015 from 10am-6pm and Saturday May 9 from 10am-5pm. Admission is free and open to the public. Directions to Peters Valley https://www.petersvalley.org/html/directions.cfm
I will go through the stages of ebonizing and show samples of the process. I’ll will explain how to make the solution with iron & vinegar, and how to prepare the wood prior to staining. In the discussion I will suggest which woods I prefers to to ebonize. In the demo, I’ll show various techniques to apply the finish, topcoats that may be used & how to seal the furniture.
The audience is invited to ask questions & participate in the discussion.
