Default Re: Baird T5 restoration project.

After several applications of wood dye on the test piece I'm sure the side panels can be stained and polished.
But the wood dye should be applied outdoors and not in the workshop, nasty fumes given off during the application process.
As the attached picture shows the panel surface colour is still too light and needs more wood dye in order that it resembles the original dark finish.
