Can't see the original post, so I'll reply to your one instead. The colour
you see on old pine furniture which has been dipped to remove paint is
partly down to age, and partly down to the stripper. On many commercial
operations in UK at least, this is simply a caustic soda solution bath.
Lye, if you're on the other side of the Pond. Buy some and experiment. In
a concentrated solution it eats brushes (and people) so treat it with
respect - safety goggles, gloves etc. When the wood has darkened, wash it
off and neutralise the wood with a weal acid solution, eg vinegar.
