Nah. It's the reflection of a fabric light box.

Dear Mr. Shim,

I just might do that.
I think you might remember the QSWO clock I made that I fumed, I was quite happy with the results. I have a recollection of wiping ammonia on cherry and it turning it green, or maybe that was red oak, I am not sure.
I will set up a small test chamber to do a Radiomagic test.
I am making the clock for two reasons. To give as a gift to a friend who I will most likely never see again and to write about how to build it and to hopefully get my third magazine article published. If I do fume, I will have to break the article into a two parter. One to build the clock and two to finish it, which isn't too a bad thing really.
Is there anything you can remember written in any of the finishing books about fuming cherry? I know all I need to know about how to do it to WO, but I am just wondering what the differences, if any, there might be when doing cherry? What is so nice about the fuming process is how deep the colour goes, you can sand a little if necessary and not break through the colour layer.
Thanks for the suggestion Owen, I hadn't thought of fuming. I will keep everyone ('cept BAD, he don't like my updates) posted on what I am doing and how things work out.
David.

I do remember your WO clock and how taken you appeared with fuming. Red Oak does have a tendency to green up when fumed - but a garnet shellac will work at cancelling out the color cast.

I don't believe I've ever read anything pertaining to cherry fuming. I treat it just like I do WO. No muss, no fuss. I use blueprint strength (28%+/-) and, IIRC, seem to let it run for 8-12 hours. I like a deep tone.
I tried a test fume of some Black Walnut, thinking it had a high tanin content and would provide some dramatic effects... no such ruck. The test did deepen the color somewhat and it _is_ pretty, but I'm not sure I'd go that route for a piece. More testing needed.

That's what I expected, but NO. It went from dark brown to just the slightest tad darker brown. Not much of a difference at all. I think I'll try it with a couple pieces of mixed sap and heartwood as well as a different tree.

<ding dong> (I would have done a bong but after what recently happened to Tommy...plus, I'm no longer a Californicator.)

I was from California, so I'm all for that tanning bed idear. It'll "naturally" darken it, not artificially darken it so it becomes -black- by this time next fall.

What a concept. I cannot grok that fully, Davey.

Jes don't stuh-AIN it, suh.

Good Morning, David:
"Accelerated weathering tests are performed with a QUV device equipped with spray nozzles and A-340 fluorescent light tubes. Exposure cycle: 5 hours' UV light at 60degC (black panel) and 1 hour spray at room temperature. UV light exposure tests are performed with A-340 tubes in dry conditions or with filtered Xenon light sources."
