When I picked this up at a Church Rummage sale I was jet black and it felt surprisingly light making me think for a moment it was old plastic.
It was when I turned it over that I realised for sure it was wooden but ebonised a long time ago. It was probably a mistake but I tested it with Methyl alcohol then continued until most of the black disappeared (I left a little as can be seen in a side view)I added nothing except a very thin coat of Linseed and Turpentine. The Mahogany color was it's original color, It was the best (almost) 10 cents buy and I'm so pleased with it! It will go to the Manitowaning museum one day.
