Queries. Staining pine wood the color of mahogany.

Manufacturer and builder 10, 1869

You may stain pine wood the color of mahogany by mixing linseed oil with burnt sienna, which you may buy from almost any house-painter, ground in oil and put up in small tin cans; to imitate rosewood, you take burnt amber or Van Dyke beown, and put in darker or lighter veins with lampblack and burnst sienna, but be careful to put ot on thin, so as to stain the wood only and not to cover it with paint. You may also stain it with water-color, but then you have to oil it afterward, before varnishing; our method dispenses with one operation, as it combines the oiling and staining.
