Christmas present for my 28 yr old daughter. While I do like to color wood, I don’t like to go this dark, but my daughter’s taste is much different from mine. The wood is sycamore. It was dyed black, sanded back, dyed with a mix of bordeaux and cordovan transtint colors, 2 coats of blonde shellac to seal the dye, and 6 coats of Target Coatings EM6000 lacquer. Let cure for 5 days, then sanded and polished. I hope she likes it – we don’t do Christmas with the kids until about New Year’s Eve due to all the obligations around the holidays, so she hasn’t seen it yet.
