Vinegar works as a wood stain when you add a metal object in the mix and let it sit in a glass container for a week.  A handful of pennies will produce a beautiful pale Caribbean blue stain.  A wad of steel wool will give you a rich reddish hue.  A combination of tea and a metal object in vinegar will produce a black stain.

    Wouldnt the stain come off on your arms though?

    I would think you just need to let it dry like any other wood stain, though I haven't tried it myself.

    I would add a coat or two of polyurethane after it dried. That would lock in and protect the stain.
