Any body out there used mulberry. Obtained a couple 100 ft of dry mulberry boards. I thought cherry changed colors. This stuff really darkens. Can you keep yellow color with water based
finish? First pic rough and darkened and second freshly planed. It is a little yellower then picture.

No replies- must not be a wood that get used much????

I have never used it. All the streets in my neighbourhood are named after trees, oak, maple etc. the street next to mine is Mulberry lane! And their is a ball diamond next to my house in Mulberry Park. That’s the only time I have ever heard of it. Sorry.

For keeping the original colour of wood I use a product called KTM9. It’s a water based nitrocellulose replacement that’s been used by instrument makers for some time. You can research and buy it on the web from LMI, luthiers mercantile inc. It’s an unbelievably hard finish that stands up to unbelievable punishment and stays clear.
