Detailed Description

The Art of Coloring Wood: A Woodworker's Guide to Understanding Dyes and Chemicals. Authors, Brian Miller and Marci Crestani

If you're a woodworker looking to take your skills, and your next project, to a higher level of craftsmanship, you might want to consider coloring your wood with chemicals and dyes instead of stains. Unlike stains that can trap light and obscure grain patterns, chemicals and dyes, when handled properly, are one of the best methods for enhancing a wood's color or accentuating the grain pattern. A classic technique that's been practiced for centuries, coloring wood is a sure way to infuse a "wow" into your woodworking efforts.

With expert guidance by Brian Miller, a professor of wood technology who teaches an actual course on coloring wood, The Art of Coloring Wood removes any and all intimidation of working with chemicals and dyes and is the perfect entry point for anyone looking to move on from simple stains to learn the art of coloring wood for dramatic effect.

The Art of Coloring Wood focuses on the six most popular woods used by woodworkers - maple, quartersawn white oak, mahogany, walnut, cherry and alder - and outlines each wood's unique coloring characteristics. Easy-to-follow and engaging chapters on the different chemicals and dyes that will make your woodworking shine. Each chapter offers recipes, insights, and applications that make learning about chemicals and dyes both fascinating and within easy reach.

With the helpful sidebars throughout the book offering tips, mistakes, and countless nuggets of information, The Art of Coloring Wood will have you understanding the methods and many worthwhile reasons for coloring your wood while chomping at the bit to get a project completed so you can finish it with style and flair.
