This isn't ebonizing. Ebonizing is too fast a process and won't look like this. It also isn't a laminate black white.
This is a stain and wipe. Start with a black (not ebony) stain, oil based. Wipe on heavy, leave it for a short time ( I mean short, as in a minute or so), wipe with the grain, heavily. I have pictures of a piece of 2x4 I did this on. Your wood needs to be pretty light for best look.
