the process you use to make your stain is fascinating. Could you use pecan shells or filbert shells in this process? How about could I use the red leaves from my Japanese maple tree? I’ve really enjoyed this course so far. hope there is more to come

You Can Use pecan for sure. As far as hazelnut, I would think it will not give reach color, I did not try hazelnut/filbert

I’m making the walnut stain now.
May I ask what’s the purpose of the baking soda?

It creates a chemical reaction. But You could try without soda. — to be honest, it is the way my teacher thought me.

How did you remove pencil marks/smudges and smooth the edges of the cutting board? Did you use the knife or small scrappers?
