I agree with redryder. I had a friend (she passed away with cancer, sadly) that used to make furniture from old barn wood. She would search high and low for sources….but when things got tough as far as available supplies – she did as red says (although I think she added some ascorbic acid (vitamin C) to enhance the acid in the vinegar base)......and made her own patina…it really looks like the wood has been weathering for some time….then she would distress the wood by scratching it and making impressions in the wood….she was very creative with the preparation.
