I would like to thank Trifern’s blog “2 DYE 4” for the results that are being displayed.

The first picture was made from poplar wood and was dyed with a combination of red and brown. The last two pictures were made from pine and were dyed with the same combination. I am truly gobsmacked by their results.

Are you using a fluting jig of sort to make your slots?

No, my way is probably much more complicated. Since I never have time to create such a jig, I use my incra system to help me do the job. First, I draw on the routing side of the board all my lines which indicate each start and finish. Second, I transcribe that over on the top of the board so I know where to place it on the solid carbibe spiral bit. This also lets me know where to start and finish as I push the board across the width of my router table. Last all I do is move my incra rounting fence attachment back 1/2 inch each time taking in account the bit, which is 1/8 inch. As you can see, probably way more complicated then it should be, but everything I do is self taught or learned through wood shop magazines. Although, Lumberjocks has been a wealth of information over the past two years and has taught me more than I would have proably learned in a decade. Thanks for asking and if have any idea of making this an easier process please let me know.
