(2569) Staining Pine Wood.

Manufacturer and builder 1, 1880

— Put pulverized asphaltum into a bowl with about twice its bulk of turpentine, and set where it is warm, shaking from time to tune until dissolved; then strain and apply with either a cloth or stiff brush. Try a little first, and if the stain be too dark, thin it with turpentine. If desirable to bring out the grain still more, give a coat of boiled oil and turpentine. When the wood is thoroughly dry, polish with a mixture of two parts shellac varnish and one part boiled oil. Apply by putting a few drops at a time on a cloth and rubbing briskly over the wood.
