The Ancient Ebonised Jarrah story
Sourced from a Busselton property, the ancient Jarrah holds immense significance, originating from some of Western Australia’s largest and most remarkable trees. Despite Jarrah’s typical red hue, my mission was to redefine its appearance. Utilizing the ebonised finish, I transformed this timber.
Ebonising isn’t mere black staining; it’s an age-old technique English furniture makers employed to emulate expensive timbers like Ebony. By reacting iron acetate (from steel wool and vinegar) with timber’s tannins, Jarrah’s high tannin content induced a strong reaction, darkening the wood to a deep brown/black. The beauty lies in retaining natural undertones and tonal variance.
