Here’s the Project Post

Tried blacking out the fenders and it turned out ok, walnut is a much blacker wood when stained but the oaks wood grain peeking through looks pretty good. but won’t be doing it again I think.


The danish oil should look good.

Those are oak fenders and I put a vinegar and steel wool wash on them that turned them almost black just like I use on the wheels.
The wash doesn’t get as black with the oak [fenders]as it does with the walnut [wheels]I use for the wheels.
