Dry Earth Effect

I'd say drybrush is the only way to go. Washing does make it look wet. The downside on drybrushing in shading is it leaves things looking dusty, and that is what you want in a thing like this.
The drybrush technique will most definitely come in handy and the washes can play a part as well.

I read an article about alternatives to this, and I found out the elmers white glue produces a similar effect. I tried it out tonight with mod podge, and did a few test samples under different conditions, and it didn't work. I will try it out with elmers glue when I find some kicking around the house.
I still like yours a lot more, its more defined, deeper cracks. Still, if I want to do a table this way, I need to find something thats cost effective. Here's the article.
