We're building a new cabin and so don't want the typical natural/clear on pine. I was thinking about gray and making it look aged but it seems like such chore. I guess I'm just looking for suggestions. thanks
Hi Dick. I had heard about it before too but it was good to see it written out with some of the possible pitfalls in making it. Vinegar and steel wool are both cheap so it won't cost much to give it a try.
A search for "ebonizing" will turn up some more information about it, I remember a discussion about it on here a few months ago. The vinegar/steel wool concoction is often referred to as ebonizing solution as it gives a deep black on walnut or oak. IME it does produce a grey stain on pine.
