Painting oak with ammonia vapor.

 Finished oak products or projects that contain oak are placed in a bucket, container or plastic bag. A jar of ammonia is lowered to the bottom, 10-15 liters of 20-30 grams of ammonia liquid, bought at a pharmacy. And at night closes tightly, if not enough (adjust the color), for a day. The smell disappears without a trace.
Ammonia fumes highlight the texture of the oak. Ammonia vapors do not affect other types of wood. The old method of our grandfathers.

...and beautiful results!

Incredible how the oldies had methods we'd never dream of... nowadays most modern woodies wear rubber gloves just to wash their hands and never dream of handling amonia.

Unfortunately amonia (chemists) are plentiful in Aussieland... but oak can only be found in gift shops in the form of lucky charm acorns.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD
