A Woodworker's Guide to Understanding Dyes and Chemicals
by Brian Miller and Marci Crestani

If you have been coloring wood with stains only, the world of wood dyes might open up new opportunities for dramatic styles and enhancement of your wood. Unlike stains, which deposit pigments into the pores of wood and trap the light, dyes color the fibers of the wood without preventing the light from being reflected back. Dyed wood can be used effectively in restoration, wood art and just bringing your craft to another level of creative and artistic expression.

The book is more technical than most finishers will need, but if you're curious about dye, you'll appreciate the recipes, photos and clear instruction in this straightforward and comprehensive guide.

Trade paperback. 8 1/2" x 11". 144 pages.

"A clear and comprehensive overview of using chemicals to colour your projects ... If it can be used to colour wood, then Miller covers it in this book ... a very enjoyable read." - Carl Duguay, Canadian Woodworking & Home Improvement

"Unique and thoroughly user friendly in tone, organization and presentation, The Art of Coloring Wood is an extraordinary and highly recommended addition to personal, professional, high school woodshop, community and academic library Woodworking instructional reference collections." -Midwest Book Review
