Restoring a woodie automobile

Postby jtucker » Tue Apr 30, 2019 5:40 pm

I am replacing all the wood on a 1938 International station wagon. The main structural wood is ash. The plywood inserts will be birch. I would like to have the wood look like it has some years of patina... therefore some type of stain before I Varnish the wood. Any Ideas for correct easy to apply stain
that will give me a sorta raw sienna/ burnt sienna look ?? I am in CA so it is hard to get anything.

Not sure how much surface you have to stain....

Red Ochre - 100 grams (about .22 lbs) for $3.95
500 grams (about 1.1 lbs) for $13.65

See technical data (page down) on this site: ... gLV6vD_BwE

Practice your strength of solution and application method on some scrap wood, first, before working on your car's wood.
