  19. 1929 Ford Van

    I Ebonized the project to hide the green poplar it was made with, came out a little dark but not to bad. The fenders and rims are maple so came out a little blacker which works out nicely. The only thing I don't like about ebonizing is it being water based it raises the grain so have to sand...
