I agree with Paul, thanks for the detail!
As to fuming, I do that a lot with my White Oak pieces. You really don't
get the correct (final) color until you top coat it, then you get the
golden brown (I top coat the raw fumed wood with Danish Oil (ringing out
the danishes for the oil can get tiring 8^)
I use hardware store ammonia (5-10%) with good results after 8-12 hours,
but you are correct about the sap wood and you need to monitor every few
hours in case of wood from different trees. Basically it comes down to
experience. One of the redeeming qualities of fuming is the browning
goes deep, no worries about leaving bare spots if you do a bit of finish
sanding or accidentally rub through a sharp corner.
