What about using artist ink to stain? I used some once to stain light coloured timber strips in red and blue and then sealed with white shellac. They turned out superb. Staining with black ink should do a decent job in simulating ebony. Or how about using black hornbeam to simulate ebony. Looks very similar. I have some strips in my stock bought from Ebay from Russia and it looks very good.

Hi Brian,

I love the Turkish boxwood, it will create a beautiful contrast with the cherry frame and black wales.
Coming to the wales you didn't place them yet? Are you putting these on top of the planking?
Hi Maarten,
I know its probably incorrect, but I find it easier to do the wales after planking. Happy Xmas buddy.
