To Dye Wood Red.

Scientific American 39, 17.6.1848

Take chopped Brazil wood, and boil it well in water, strain it through a cloth. Then give your wood two or three coats, till it is the shade wanted. If wanted a deep red boil the wood in water impregnated with alumn and quick-lime. When the last coat is dry, burnish it with the burnisher, and then varnish.
