Great idea! You did a great job. I have worked with rustic wood for many years and i make all sorts of boxes for the local farmers market.

If you ever want to age a new piece of wood then get some white cider vinegar and steel wool. Soak the steel wool in vinegar and then start rubbing the wood. It will gray up the color to different levels depending on type of wood.
