A few months ago, I wrote about how to stain wood with a combination of steel wool and apple cider vinegar. Every since that experiment I have been using the method for my custom signs and other projects. I wanted to experiment a bit more to see what other natural stains I could use and what other colors I could come up with. I love the way the Balsamic Vinegar reacts with the steel wool and the color of stain this combination makes. I have used this stain on untreated pine. I use this stain on plain boards BEFORE assembling them into signs, crates, etc. Here is where you can find the Hometalk post on apple cider vinegar: http://www.hometalk.com/diy/paint/age-or-stain-wood-with-vinegar-2524453
