Imparting a Fine Orange-Yellow Tone to Oak Wood.

Manufacturer and builder 2, 1876

According to Niedling, a beautiful orange-yellow tone, much admired in a chest at the Vienna Exhibition, may be imparted to oak wood by rubbing it in a warm room with a certain mixture until it acquires a dull polish, and then coating it after an hour with thin polish, and repeating the coating of polish to improve the depth and brilliancy of the tone. The ingredients for the rubbing mixture are about 3 ounces of tallow, ¾ of an ounce of wax, and 1 pint of oil of turpentine, mixed by heating together and stirring.
