Ebonizing wood: carbonisation

Ebonizing wood: carbonisation

My schoolmate tried one way of ebonising wood. I will show you the process and the result.

The main thing in this process is carbonisation of the wood in linseed oil without access of oxygen. During this process, water from the maple wood evaporate. Surprisingly, the result is still flexible. We think that oil maybe replaced moisture of wood. Despite the use of oil, gluing this wood is possible after oil dries.
