This project took me about a months worth of evenings and weekends to complete. I would say that it is the most ambitious project I have undertaken to date. I ebonized the red oak using an application of black tea first and then applying iron acetate created from putting steel wool in vinegar for about a week. It was really amazing to watch the color change before my eyes. I then made a paste wax finish of 1 part bees wax and 3 parts vegetable oil.
