My first project. Little treasure box built for my daughter out of curly maple. The red stain really brings out the patterns in the wood. The sides are ebonized with india ink.

Nothing fancy…I just spread india ink on with a foam brush, let dry, and sprayed on a 4-5 coats of polyurethane.
India ink leaves a darker finish than stain, resembling ebony.
