Re: Rustic Barnwood Bench

Thanks. Most of the bench is a natural patina from the wood weathering for the last 50 plus years. I resawed veneers about 1/4" thick and glued them to the substrate. Where new cuts exposed fresh wood I roughed the area with a wire brush and blended it in with the natural cracks and checks. From there I used tannic acid (black tea) followed with a wash coat of acetic acid/iron oxide solution (vinegar with steel wool dissolved in it) to turn the fresh wood a dull grey. This gave the whole bench the look of being weathered and old.
