    Default wood stain (natural methods)

    I have seen a couple of common ways for staining wood, including caustic chemicals and fumes.

    Last night I had an experience with gravity that made me think about wine. Can wine be used to stain wood such as poplar and retain the color for a long period of time? Red wine might produce a wood color similar to purple heart.

    End caps stained in your favorite wine would be cool. This will require some testing. :)

    really cant comment on how long the color would last but i think that you will enjoy the wine more than the cabinets will...or at least i would :)

    I'm sure if you cover the wine staining with a clear coat of something, it should last forever.

    The depth of color you'd get would be very pale. Wine does not make for a good wood stain.

    It may make your music more tender and soften your highs, works great with Japanese veal for sure.
