if you beleached out all of the brown color the stain fourmula i told you will come out very orange,...if you want that reddish brown color,.. die the wood in "coco brown" first,. then lightly sand when it is dry

just something to think about,...dident want you curseing me into next week because the color was not right

i learned this the hard way when useing the left over dye on my 74's brand new wood,..it is a nice look,..especially with a E.G. Bakealite mag under it, but im thinking if id want this on a fixed stock 74,.. not my folder,..so after i get another kit and build it up im going to dye some ironwood to look like this.
