    I'm building a big shed out of old wood and running low kind of. Is there anyway to turn new wood (1x3, 1x4 ect) that cool old blue/grey color of aged wood? shadowwalker.

    yes, you can take nails or other clean steel and soak in vinegar then paint the new wood with the solution.
    It will oxidize the wood to the color you desire in a short time once exposed.
