The history of Ebony being used in carved furniture can be traced back to the ancient Egyptians. We have created a similar rich, lustrous large cherry wood serving bowl by using a process called “Ebonizing.” The ebonizing solution is made from two common products, vinegar, and steel wool. The steel wool is soaked overnight in a plastic container filled with vinegar, creating an “iron solution.” When this solution is applied to the bowl, it reacts immediately turning the Cherry into a rich black color. Ebonizing is a safe, easy way to create beautiful bowls with originality and character.
