Fumed

As the story goes fuming was accidentally discovered in England after it was noticed the oak beams in a stable had darkened. This was caused by the ammonia fumes from the horse urine reacting with the wood. At the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries, fuming became popular with furniture makers.

The process creates wonderful depths of natural colour variation which is caused by the differing levels of tannin in each wood plank.
