  1. How long do you have to let the ink set before applying the finish? Also do you need to apply dewax shallac if you're going to use a brush on lacquer?

  2. Thank you very much!!! I'm doing this method today on a 63×28 wood board from a computer gaming rig desk set up. I'll provide an update when all is done. So far one coat of ink is on every side of this wood. Thanks again!

  3. Well,, I can't buy rosewood fingerboards for my guitars anymore, and ebony is WAY too expensive, so , how would this work on a hard non porous wood? Specifically Maple ?

  4. Great tutorial! Great option to plowing through my ebony coffer. Going to try this! Thanks!

  5. can you do a butcher block counter top with this and what to seal it with if so .. I already know you cant put food on it but I want a black top for my kitchen island i would use cutting boards for food prep any ideas

  6. How much ink does this method use? I want to stain about 30-35 sq ft of wood for a custom desk. Would a pint bottle be sufficient? Or should look into a more conventional method?

  7. Relative to my project: the most informative video I've come across. Thanks a lot for this bro imma about to take off like a 🚀👍

  8. I'd like to use this technique on a pine chest, which has lots of knots. Should I treat the knots first? Many thanks.

  9. Great video!

    I'm going to stain my IKEA oak butcher block counter tops using India ink. I wonder if I need to use a pre-stain wood conditioner?

  10. Nice article & presentation. I want to know which process, Stain or Dye or Ink, is least likely to run or bleed or leech into an adjoining inlay strip. I plan to give my Maple banding a shot of clear coat before attaching the different pieces. (I am planning to dye some walnut to look like ebony & inlay the finishes strips of it, next to inlay banding of maple). I was also wondering how the stain or dye would effect it's gluing properties.
