Vinegar Stain to age wood

eco friendly, non toxic wood stain.
I am also going to experiment with different vinegars since different vinegars produce different stains. I read that apple cider vinegar makes a slate gray stain and balsamic vinegar makes a brownish green color.
Always test your stain on a scrap piece of wood. Make sure the scrap wood is the same type of wood that you are staining since different woods take the stain differently.
Seal with an oil or natural wax finish to protect the wood.
