Topic tags/keywords: question finishing rustic

I have a job to build some shutters for a customer. They want a finish I have not done and am looking for any suggestions. I need to do a similar finish like the one in picture. Its the contrasting and blending of the red and darker color that i am wondering about. Any suggestions would be nice. Thank

Could be a combination of two different stains one over a base color rubbed off or they mixed up paint the color of the brown on the window frames and then wiped it off with thinner. You are going to have experiment

It looks like they may have burned it w/ a torch. The finish also looks like it may be Cabot Australian Timber Oil. Just a Guess.
