Radu, I like using an aniline dye when I want the grain to show. You can get ebony black and mix it to any density that you would like. You need to experiment with some scrape first, but you can get a really deep black without hiding alot of the grain. I’ve used the analine dyes through Woodworks Supply and have had good luck with them. It’s always a little tricky when you use a new product you are not familar with, but It can really give you a deep color. Just Remember…’s all about making the project manager happy!
Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
