When we finish a piece that we have worked on and the project looks brand spanking new, we feel good. It is nice to take lumber and fabricate it into something that you would appreciate sitting in your home and it look crisp and stand-out-ish. But there are also settings that you don’t want the lumber on your project to have that “new” vibe.
You may want it to have a rustic tone, or aged appearance. So what do you do? Well, you can purchase older materials, or possibly tear down that barn in the neighbors yard (please get their permission) – or you can use a simple trick.
Check this trick out in the video below. Easy, low costing, and just takes a little extra time to give your wood the age you would like it to have – or at least appear to be.
