The shop I work out of just picked up a contract to build some garage
cabinets from 100 year old reclaimed Redwood. It is all tongue and
grooved flooring and wall paneling with ancient old paint, stains and
very cool patina.
We are building the project leaving as much of this old finish in
place. However, all of the fresh cut edges need to be re-aged to
darken, gray out, whatever so they match.
Does anyone have experience or knowledge of what chemicals or process I
can use to age these edges?
