This fuming tent design provides the best of all worlds: easy to assemble, easy to break down and, since it is composed of flat panels, it stores reasonably well. When I made my first one, I dutifully screwed the whole thing together and placed duct tape across all edges. I soon realized that was overkill and found that solid clamping sealed the fuming tent sufficiently.

FUMING TENT CONSTRUCTION

Kitchen ammonia is too weak to efficiently fume your woodworking projects. However, working with 26-30% ammonia can be dangerous. This fuming tent construction plan provides a safe environment to fume your Arts & Crafts furniture. It’s easy to assemble and knocks down to put away when not in use.

When one looks at Craftsman style furniture, several features stand out. First is the solid heaviness of the design—this is not furniture you casually slide across the room. Second is the cut of the wood: it’s often quarter sawn white oak and as such, the beautiful rays crossing the grain stand out with each piece as unique as a snowflake. Lastly is the wood’s color; a beautiful, deep, honey-brown tone.

HOW TO SAFELY FUME YOUR FURNITURE

If you want your craftsman furniture to stand out, nothing beats the beauty of fuming your wood instead of staining your wood.
