Well thanks to Mr. Owen Shim and others, it looks like I am going to fume my
little cherry clock with ammonia.
Here is what my test piece looks like set beside the clock,
I compared it to a cherry table I made about 20 years ago, and it is even
darker than the table. Fuming seems to make the cherry look as old as it
ever will in just a few days of exposure.
I like it and I will keep everyone posted on how things are coming,
Every neighbourhood has one, in mine, I'm him.

Unless you have a piece of anchovy caught in your teeth, that should
be 'bated breath,' meaning "I'm holding my breath."
Why not? David E.'s work is always worth looking at, and he shares
the results of his behind-the-scenes investigations into techniques, which
benefits all of us.
You, on the other hand, can't seem to wipe yourself without asking
how to fold the paper first.
I'm just wondering what he's trying to catch. Baited breath..cheese, for mice?
Or does he mean "bated," as in "holding?"

It seems you've allocated some special time to embarrass yourself in public
David Eisan has been a wealth of information over the years, helping others
and explaining what he learns along the way. He posts and maintains the FAQ
on behalf of the wreck, he doesn't attack or belittle others, he adds value
by providing pictures of techniques he is trying and generating discussion.
In short, he is and always has been a valued contributor. Since this bothers
you, what exactly do you think participation in the wreck is about?
On another note, wait until you see the pictures of the motherload of all
trade in's. I am buying two massive shops at work to trade in on downsized
new equipment (two prisions ww'ing shops closed, new smaller outsourced shop
being built). Things like General 12" jointer, 24" planer, floor model
mortiser (like a Yates), knobless dust door cast iron based Canukastani made
Unisaurs, Crescent/Delta 20" bandsaws, 16" Wadkin TS's, lathes, radio alarm
saws, the list goes on and on.
Some guys get all the fun jobs. You'll of course me making
up a pictorial record???
And speaking of Kanada, somewhere in all my things I have a
shot of a Unisaw with a Beaver tagged dust door. I saw this
at a shop up in Edmonton (like Omaha only farther nort' and
west Leon). The picture didn't come out too goodly though
and to tell you the truth I'd have to go digging for it. I
wonder if FotoShoppe wouldn't resurrect the thing?
Gotta keep an eye on those Beavers.
I brought up an old ('73) shot of a Yankee half-miler (motorcycle made in
Schenectady, NY for a few seasons) set up for ice racing, taken at Glens Falls
in February (the lakes have to be cold enough to hold a *lot* of vehicles).
Scanned way too dark, though it's medium format, but PSE 2 did a fine job of
turning it into as much of a visual treat as it will ever be. Mostly a reminder
of going on my butt on the same bike while playing around after the races.
