Wood graining an old schoolhouse.  We recently finished a large wood graining job re-finishing all the woodwork in a 19th century building that was originally a schoolhouse.  The architect wanted woodgraining done the old-fashioned way- with beer and linseed oil.  The stripped wood was pretty rough so the graining on the wainscoting and trim had to be pretty rudimentary.  The door were smooth so I could at least do some  simple heart graining on the panels.
