Right guys!

No pitch… bull…......just a technique that works well with oak.

Have been looking for a way to “stain” duckboards that will ensure no “run” or “fade” under the conditions the product is faced with.

Vinegar solution with rusty nails and wire wool. Left for 4 days, strained through an old pair of tights (thanks missus!). Sprayed onto finished product and within 3 hours…..a perfect stain that retains the visible grain and will never lose colour.

Thanks again LJ’s for the heads up.

Cool. I always wanted to try an “ebonizing” technique like that with the vinegar and metal solution.

-- Happy woodworking!
