Topic tags/keywords: aniline dye

I am building a little project with multiple tyes of wood: figured maple, figured claro walnut, curly red oak, along with tigerwood, eucalyptus, cherry, jatoba, rosewood, lacewood, and a touch of yellowheart. Hey you gotta do something with all those scraps…......

Anyways, I want to use this technique from the Woodwhisperer.

I picked up TransTint Dark Vintage Maple dye – and I will mix up a fresh batch of shellac. Looking for opions on using this dye/shellac combo and the whole project and then thoroughly sanding before a couple top coats of Arm-R-Seal. Is this a recipe for disaster?

Also planning of buffing out the whole works on the Beall wood buff, which I just picked up.

Appreciate your comments.
