Steel wool~vinegar solution
What are tbe quantities and what type of vinegar? Is the steel wool just dropped in and I'm assuming that the concoction needs to be left for a certain amount of time before use?

I used white vinegar, but I suppose is possible to use any kind of vinegar. Just put in a jar vinegar and steel wool and wait a couple of days. Then just spread it over the fretboard and clean it, or leave it for 10 minutes, the more the solution stays the darker should be the result.

If you have already oiled the fretboard that would affect how the stain is absorbed, no? I have done several raw boards with plain old MinWax stains with good results. No stain rub off issues.
