The latest issue of Scrollsaw Woodworking & crafts has a project of making a box with a wooden ribbon on top.
Internet research shows the ability to purchase pre-dyed veneer or articles on using dye to make your own. If you make your own TransTint dye seems to be the popular choice. But, at $20 per color three colors gets expensive. I was planning on using some Pecan veneer that I have that is a very light brown in color.
Has anyone made their own color dyed veneer and would like to share their experiences?
Would the light brown of the Pecan be able to be dyed a bright Red, Green, or Blue? Or should I find some Maple veneer? Or what veneer would you use?
