Vinegar

Do u think you gave to do both tea and vinegar or would tea alone suffice?

It is probobly best to use

It is probobly best to use both the tea and the vinegar because when they are both used together on the wood they create some kind of reaction giving you the color that you want. It is also a good idea to experiment on some scrap wood first to get the color right. Im not sure if you have read this article or not but it gives the full step by step on this kind of finish I hope this helps. http://thefriendlyhome.blogspot.ca/2012/07/how-to-oxidize-wood.html
