The key is the species of wood you are treating. The 'staining' comes from the chemical reaction of the solution with the tannins in the wood (that's why the tea solution is recommended- the tannins in tea help the process). Species like cedar & oak work best because of their natural high tannin content. Pine and spruce is not great- even with the tea treatment. Just to let your readers know that resulting stain colour is greatly varied and, typically, ebonizing doesn't work well on pine.

How to 'weather' wood remove varnish take steel wool and put in a jar and cover with vinegar. Let it sit at least 24 hours make a strong cup of tea and brush the tea on the wood and let dry. brush on the vinegar mixture.
