Here is a detailed video on preparing wood for wood finishing. I tried to show a wood prep for maple wood, and a dying technique for “Popping The Grain” using a figured curly maple wood. The wood dye ratios were very concentrated in this video, and were mixed at the following dye stain ratios:
Black Wood Dye: 2 ounces warm water to 1/4th tsp of black dye powder
Blue Wood Dye: 4 Ounces rubbing alcohol (70% Isopropyl Alcohol) to 1/2 tsp of the Blue Dye Powder.
Wood was prepped with a progression sand utilizing wood specific sandpaper: 120 grit, 150 grit, 180, grit, used hot water to raise the grain (optional) let dry, then sanded with 220 grit (optional) prior to applying the wood dyes to the surface of the wood.
I really hope it helps out, and thank you for watching the video!

USMC – MG1 – Marine Guitar One“The color scheme and ranks down to the pickups and gold hardware was to simulate his dress blues.”
“Me and one other built this guitar for my new brother in-law. He served our wonderful country for 25 years in the USMC.
We built this for him as a retirement gift from us as a thank you for serving our great nation.”

It is an honor to have met you! Thank you so much to your brother in law for serving our beloved Nation. We cannot thank him enough, and the way I see it, I owe him one 🙂
Ever mix some wood dyes or wood stain colors together? Then proceed in the wood coloring process, only to find 3 months later, that you would like to recreate that same color for a nice matching table, or perhaps bring new life into an old wooden door with that same color. However, you go to grab the mixed stain, only to find there is none left. Here is a great wood coloring tip that may help you have the ability to recreate mixing dyes for that same exact finish.
