This is exactly how I get that aged look back to old US military rifle stocks. Over the years the stocks get a reddish color from old oils and metal parts coming into contact with wood and cleaning solution. Everyone says there is no way to get it back to the original red color without staining, which never looks right. But there is isn't there.

Smells picked iron fish, tho….lol.

I have tried this finish on a wood crate I built. Looks great! But it still smells like vinegar and every time I touch the crate my hands smell like vinegar. I don't want to clear coat it because the sheen will detract from the old look.Did I do something wrong?
