@heatherb Hi heather,
it’s a really simple process and it’s all made from just normal vinager, a hand full of cut steel wool #0000, fill a jar up and put in the steel wool, let it sit for a few days, I have had it sit there for a week, take wool out and there is one part of stain.
when your work has been sanded and ready for stain, (I’ve just used this on pine) mix in a bowel a strong blend of coffee (I have also trialed with tea bags and works great also) Using a cheap brush paint on the coffee first and let it dry then paint on the vinager mix. In a few minutes you will see your stain transform darker into magic.
Yoy can either leave how is or finish off with a clear varnish which bring out the stain Even more with a nice shine
good luck and Please share the result with us
