Can I stick walnut in the sun to age it?
I have a veneered walnut cabinet I'd like to make a simple hutch thingy to sit on. Is it possible to make new walnut look like older walnut? Is it UV that causes the lightening or something else?
Would I be better off using a different wood with similar grain and more stable coloring (any suggestions?) and staining it to match?
...or should I just buy new furniture like the spouse wants? :P
