Staining Wood to Imitate Cedar.

The Manufacturer and Builder 6, 1885

German technical papers recommend the following mixture for the staining of wood in imitation of cedar: Two hundred parts of catechu, 100 parts of caustic potash, and 10,000 parts of water, all by weight. The longer the wood remains in this solution the better the stain penetrates its fibers, and thick veneers can in this way be stained right through the whole thickness, which permits a refinishing without injury to the color.
