We have created a similar rich, lustrous look on our wooden bowls by using a process called Ebonizing. We make the ebonizing solution 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 applies 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.
