I am making a desk out of walnut and the client wants it to be a dark color (java). The wood I ended up with has a lot of sapwood in it and I can’t afford to buy new. I thought I could dye the wood and blend the sapwood after reading many articles on the subject. I would like to know if I am going this dark can I get good results and would it be best to build in sections then glue up after dying? Will the dye effect the glue up?
thanks for any help,
