A friend of mine wanted a wooden egg for his mom. It was not for me to ask why, because I don’t need to know why, I just need a reason to get on the lathe. Ash, analine dye, poly finish, grade A extra large.

The dye looks pretty cool. Do you have to do anything special when applying it?

Thanks for the nice comments. yesplease151, you can check out triferns blog on using analine dyes here: http://lumberjocks.com/trifern/blog/9400
He is definitely the master. This was my first dying attempt. I normally only use the color I can get from the wood itself, never stains, but after seeing triferns work I had to buy some of every color of analine dyes. I used to only like dark wood with lots of character but with dyes available there are whole new opportunities to work with some of the “boring” woods.
