This is a slot car box I made using white birch plywood and "dyed" the plywood using TransTint Red Mahogany. I followed the recommended mix ratio intially but after 5 coats it was not dark enough for me. I had a challenge with some contamination as the clearcoat was applied, so I had to wait and sanded down only the clear. I didn't want to redo the stain/dye. I altered the mix ratio and reapplied the dye over the clear, using it as a toner - sort of like spraying a candy color and this is the result. I really like using TransTint dyes.
"Have been a return customer for a number of years, and a recent experience has really cemented that bond for me. After using my Rockler lighted magnifying lens for a few months, one of the wires from the battery pack came loose. When I contacted Customer Service to inquire about sending the unit back, they instead sent me a brand new one - no questions asked, no return expected, no charge whatsoever. This simple step - coupled with top quality, innovative products - ensured my repeat business more than any other advertising technique or gimmick could ever do.
Keep up the good work, Rockler!" -
