How to make your handles  have that
old look

Fill a half gallon empty can or mason jar  with
vinegar and 5 pads of 4/0 steel wool

2 Let set for two days for medium stain or 4
days for darker stain. Pour stain into a new
container    
using a strainer
3 Sand wood with coarse sandpaper for better
wood penetration..
4 Apply with brush, until wood is fully penetrated
with stain.
5 After wood has completely dried, wax with
Minwax and polish with a towel.
6 If you want and aged finish, distress the
wood,sanding,then applying stain..
People have been asking me how to weather their
plow handles. I found this on the Internet. I have not
tried it my self. But it may help you.
We require 50.00 down before we build
you beam. These are custom made. If
you can trace your old beam... send
that with your request.
Here's what you need:  Another method but it looks like you can make
them darker.

White vinegar from the supermarket. Any brand will do, but you may need at
least a gallon for a decent sized room and more for a very large room such
as a living room.
Lots of steel wool. Preferably a fine, very fine, or ultra-fine grade with minimal
impurities or additives (no SOS, stainless steel or anything of that nature,
you'll see why.)
Lots of soft rags. Most hardware stores will have great prices on bags of
T-shirt material rags, which are perfect, but even old bath towels will do.
A couple hours of free time.
Optionally:
Some bags of tea for extra color, even a bit of water-based stain for tinted
colors if desired. I chose to go without including these.

How-To:
1) Half-empty the bottle of white vinegar. You may set aside the vinegar you
had to remove for anything else.

2) Insert several bunches of steel wool into the bottle of vinegar, making
them as submerged as possible.

3) If desired, add several bags of tea, a bit of water-based stain for extra
color.

4) Cover the bottle and allow to sit anywhere from 12 hours overnight to 2
days. The longer you allow it to sit, the more the steel wool will break down
into the vinegar and even if you can't see it, the mix will be more potent
(darker when applied to wood).

5) Prepare the wooden object or surface you wish to apply the vinegar to.
This works by far the best on fresh or sanded wood. Any residue from
pre-stain, beeswax, and other substances can make application quite
sloppy and time consuming.

6) Open the vinegar bottle. Some warm air will probably escape as you open
it; this is normal although the immediate smell may not be cologne-quality. If
you can access the steel wool through the opening, then go ahead and
remove it. If not, you can just cut above the liquid until the vinegar bottle
functions as a bowl.

7) Take a pad of steel wool and scrub it smoothly but firmly across the object
as evenly as possible. Don't be surprised if you see little or no color at first.
The wood will react over the course of several minutes and perhaps not
show the "permanent" outcome for a day.

8) Take a handful of damp rags and wipe the area down firmly, attempting to
mix any streaks or blobs the steel wool left

9) Wipe thoroughly with dry rags.

By the time you've done all of this, you should notice that the wood you've
applied the mix to has gradually darkened. The smell of the vinegar will
eventually clear out, and on the upside, vinegar is actually a great cleaning
product and extremely mold-resistant.

On light pine, this will result in a golden-red with a dull gray hue and flat
texture. On oak, this will result in blackening. On red cedar, this will result in
a black/gray/pink swirl. I've seen the mix applied to pine with a blue
water-based stain with some interesting but very niche results.

I included a before/after photo with the article to illustrate my end-result when
utilizing this aging technique on my pine walls. Conclusion: They nearly
identically resemble the half-century old wood in the downstairs living room
and create almost a medieval aesthetic when combined with stone or
ceramic flooring. I simply couldn't get the same subtle look with stain!
