I've been asked to build a kitchen side table for a friend at work. He wants it black, but not painted. So I am thinking of using this black dye, http://www.leevalley.com/wood/page.a...190,42996&ap=1
but I also read recently in a magazine that black dye can have a blueish or greenish tinge (which I don't want), so they recommended to use black India Ink to dye the wood. Has anyone used this? Any other options?
I havn't decided on the wood yet (I need to look at his other furniture), but probably oak or maple. Thanks.
