Other people have reported success in staining black with india ink.
I havenn't done it. I have used occasional black magic marker on some
touchups that worked OK.
Obviously you need to check for compatibility with the finish.
Not long ago, I started a thread on this and posted my results after testing
several finishes. The winner for ebonizing maple was a drop or two of
undiluted transtint black spread on the board with a rag just dampened with
d-alcohol. It was *black*. CharlieB suggested Design Higgins WaterProof
Drawing Ink 4415 and I want to try it but haven't yet. Anyway, that thread
was titled 'ebonizing maple and was originally posted 1/15/08.
