Naw man, the key is sand paper, that's kind of what the Duo-Sonic look like when I started sanding it...

sand paper, then just put varnish over it

Dear Stoner Stone,
I have found in reading this post that you are lacking the intelligence of a normal person.
you need serious help, possibly involving a screwdriver, and a large piece of wood.
please, be deceased now.
thank you

so basically just sand the living hell out of the thing till it looks worn and then varnish it?

Start with a course grade of paper, like 100 grit, then go up (the higher the number the finer the sand). Start with 100, then 150, then 300, then go into the black **** you have to use water with to get it SMOOTH then add a finish (or oil it) and call it good.

Yeah man, but don't sand too much off or it'll look tacky, as forsaknazrael said.
