Let’s see now. 3 hardware stores, 2 big box stores, 3 lumber yards, and 4 mail order houses. And now , thanks to LJ hairy, I’ve got to add grocery stores to my project supplier list. Who knew that wood dye would be in the wife’s kitchen labeled “food/egg coloring”. Sure wish it came in pints.
Anyway, maple body, bandsaw interior, sand, add walnut bottom. Bandsaw exterior shape, sand. Used this on 3/8” maple to outline leaf. Cut leaf. Sanded to shape. Used Dremel tool to cut veins. Dyed. 2 coats of spray lacquer to seal then used Sharpie on the veins. More spray lacquer.
OK for 1st attempt, but I keep thinking about the other colors in the box of dye. What can I do with red, blue and yellow? Any ideas?
