Black dye on Angel Step Maple

 This Catfish has a highly figured maple top in a pattern known as Angel Step, or Angel Stair. The final color will be trans purple, but in order to really accentuate the figuring, I'll dye it black first, then sand most of the black away before adding the purple final color.


Here are some shots when it's wet:

Dry and in sunlight. Pretty dramatic figure, for sure!
