How do you use this technique on a large piece of furniture?

Use a brush to brush it on or a rag but keep it wet for as long as you can. What size piece are you considering. Cheers Steve

It is a large vintage 1950's T.V. cabinet that seems to have dark veneer. Not sure if ebony but wanted to try on a spot to see if anything matched. We are a repurpose/upcycle business and it is being converted into a dry bar for a client.
