    I'm using whitewood
    Sorry I didn't see the coffee part.

    I'd like to see what color the mixture turned the board without the coffee.

    The first picture is of the mixture. I'd already taken out the steel wool. It really isn't that dark at all, just slightly gray. As dark as it turned the wood, I don't think I'll let mine sit for more than a day unless I'm using extremely light wood. Much longer, or darker wood and it would almost be black.
    Second picture is of the whole piece of 2x4 stud. The left side had two coats of just the mixture. The middle is just a strip of one coat. The right side had one coat of really strong coffee, then two coats of the mixture. There was about 30 minutes between coats.
    The third picture is just of the back of the stud to show the original color. It's pretty much a brand new stud, so no previous weathering.
    The fourth picture is the right side (coffee and two coats) and the last picture is of the left side (two coats).

    I don't have the best camera, so the color is a tad off. It's a little lighter in person. It had been sitting for about 1-2 hours when I took the pictures. I also put on kind of thin coats and didn't get some spots that great, but I was just testing it out. We'll see for sure how they turn out tomorrow. I'm thinking I'll try a wax coat over it to see what finish I can put on it. I want more of a matte finish, not much shine.

    Thanks for the link. I think I'll try and use this for my kitchen island cart. I'm going to try it on redwood when I get to it.

    It's got to be all about the tannins. Here's a shot from tonight. All the same solution (which is still clear liquid). 30 minutes after application, from left to right: poplar, red oak, whitewood 2x4

    [​IMG]

    I'm brewing some tea now to try to impart some tannins to the whitewood, since that's what the table is made of.

    The red oak looks good. Definitely is all about the tannins. Good luck with the tea, maybe it has more tannins than the coffee I tried.

    oooh... a woodworking thread! Love some of the stuff I've seen here so I thought I'd contribute...

    The latest is a built-in entertainment center/bookcase/storage-thingy I just finished (the little wine rack isn't part of it--we just need to figure out where to put it):
    [​IMG]

    I designed it using google Sketchup and went through lots of design changes along the way. It's a great program not just for working out a design but also figuring out how it will all fit together and the order of assembly (particularly since I don't do this for living and sort of figure it out as I go). Many costly mistakes have been avoided!
    [​IMG]

    and a built-in bookcase with a display case I did for my in-laws:
    [​IMG]

    And a kayak just for good measure:
    [​IMG]

    I'm about to start on a trestle table using a 6' x 4' x 3" slab of wood I acquired a while back that's been sitting around waiting to be made into something. I'm not even sure what species it is, but it weighs a friggin ton.

    Finished the oxidized pine rustic coffee table.

    First pic makes it look reddish, but that's just the lighting in the shop, the second pic shows the true color

    [​IMG]

    Oxidized pine vs the original whitewood pine. No tea, one coat of oxidizing solution. Im pretty happy with the color.

    I built my mom a nice planter box for mothers day so she can put that on her deck or something, now I am trying to think of ideas of what I can build for my dad. I thought of a gun rack for on his wall, but I don't think he would want to store his guns somewhere that isn't in his safe.

    I am also thinking a wine rack of some kind, because he has a TON of wine. I was going to try and find out what kind of cabinets he's got so I can try to match them. Anyone know of any good designs for a wine rack or shelf?

    My 'first' wood working project. My dad is a major wood worker, I'm a computer nerd. He helped me use the tools, and I came up with this.

    Forgot to upload my pictures using the vinegar/steel wool mixture to this thread. The cart is made of Redwood. I only used one coating of the mixture. If your wood is a white wood, it won't change as drastically:

    Here's the before:
