the cabinet I made in shop class, WAY BACK in 66, was 'aged'
that way, then finished with 1/3 varnish, 1/3 linseed oil, and
1/3 thinner- a coat a day for a week, then a coat a week for a
month... got a little darker over the years, but is STILL just
I put the 'ageing solution' on every day for a week, and then
let it dry over the weekend before starting to finish it...
