Aging Pine

What is the solution that commercial shops use to get pine to have a worn look?
Thanks

Hi, Traves
Can't see the original post, so I'll reply to your one instead. The colour you see on old pine furniture which has been dipped to remove paint is partly down to age, and partly down to the stripper. On many commercial operations in UK at least, this is simply a caustic soda solution bath. Lye, if you're on the other side of the Pond. Buy some and experiment. In a concentrated solution it eats brushes (and people) so treat it with respect - safety goggles, gloves etc. When the wood has darkened, wash it off and neutralise the wood with a weal acid solution, eg vinegar.
Cheers
Frank
