Testimonials

Just wanted to say that the quality of all the products LMI has sent me is awesome!

I was shocked at the outstanding quality of the wood sent with my kit. All the wood in my kit is stunning! I can't wait to work on this project.  The quality of the services is top notch and the tools I bought from LMI are top grade.

I am glad LMI sets a high standard in quality all around. I look forward to this project and many more knowing that a place like LMI exists with these standards.

I work in a manufacturing environment so I know the work it takes to keep such a high standard. I know LMI couldn't do it without having good people doing the daily grind. Please let your co-workers and shop staff know that I said thanks for the work they do.

I hope LMI continues this tradition of high quality, it can be hard to find a place that values a high standard.

Great job
and thanks!

Aniline Dyes Water Soluble

DYESAnilineDyeFSTRWonAndyBuzzellguitar800These high-grade water soluble dyes work very well for coloring your own laminates or purflings where you want complete penetration. The best results are found on hard and close-grained woods, like Maple. Lacquer, varnish, or shellac may be applied over the stain once it is dry without fear of smears or smudges. Each ½ oz. container is enough to make 1-2 quarts, depending upon desired concentration.

MIXING/APPLICATION: Do not pour water over the powder, but gradually add the powder to hot (not boiling) water. It should dissolve in about fifteen minutes. (For use with making laminates or purflings where you want complete penetration, cook in a pressure cooker for at least twelve hours—longer is better.) It's suggested that the instrument be sponged with a weak solution of the mixed stain, allowed to dry, and then sanded. A wash coat of shellac or lacquer applied after the water stain has dried makes the wood fibers more stiff and brittle and easier to sand. The wash coat also helps to prevent cutting the stain off the edges and harder parts of the wood. 1/2 oz. wide mouth plastic container—enough for 1 to 2 quarts, depending upon desired concentration.

NOTE: These dyes are sold by weight. Some colors are heavier than others and so the amount in each container may vary.
