I keep a mason jar filled with scrap iron - old steel wool, old nails
etc - nice and rusty. Then I fill the jar with white distilled
vinegar and let it sit for a while.
I will then filter the vinegar solution into another jar, and when you
soak oak in it, it will stain the oak black - like ebony. Never tried
this with a large thing like a desk - but you might give it a try. It
is not a surface treatment, it is a stain, and it goes quite deep into
the wood, so you can sand and finish like ordinary oak.
