I’m turning a redwood slab into a desktop. This will have an inlay of wenge across it which is filling in a defect. The redwood has very warm colors, and the dark brown of the wenge (as beautiful as it is) is clashing a bit. So I’d like to stain the wenge to make it as black as possible, while still ideally keeping the beautiful lines of grain visible.
Any suggestions for an appropriate finish here?
