We are trying to stain a maple bar counter in our restaurant to have a weathered, gray look. Does anyone know how we can do that? It was stained a cherry color, so we sanded off the stain to the original light colored wood. We will also have to protect it from all the wiping and spilling that happens on restaurant counters, but we still want it to have that natural weathered gray look. Any advice? I asked the woodwhisperer and he said that there is a two part clear solution that chemically reacts with wood to make it gray. Any body know what the name is or have any other suggestions? Thanks!
