Hey everyone, I am ready to move onto the next step of building my guitar and I don't know where to find a piece of wood for my fretboard.

I want it to be a black ebony fretboard. My local lumberyard only has a huge $500 piece and the pieces I've seen on eBay are really streaky/not black. I saw this black stain on stewmac (http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Finishing_supplies/Colors,_tints,_and_stains/Black_Fingerboard_Stain.html?actn=100101&xst=1&xsr=1054). Is this what people normally use to get their fretboards super black?

Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks.

That's what people use these days, yes. They do it because perfectly black ebony is extremely rare and expensive.
