Yes I'll try to do that. I've been a wood worker for over forty years using stains, gels and sealers etc. I heard of the fantastic depth of colour one can achieve using the ink. I'm going to use oak most likely and will see how it goes. Thanks again.

if you use steelwool and place it in vinegar then soak a piece of wood in it the wood will turn black.
I have done this in the past and it worked out pretty good because like a paint or stain it did not cover the grain or figure of the wood. it also gave the wood an old weathered look.
