Anybody know how to speed dry black bamboo without it cracking? Also, how to stain regular coloured bamboo a dark brown? (I need the chair caning I’m using with it to match the bamboo so I can’t torch the bamboo) I’ve read of using Rit Dye with alcohol and also heating up Rit Dye and water and simmering the bamboo, anyone know if either of these methods actually works? Wood stain?
Thanks for any suggestions.
