You might want to look at https://woodandshp.com
Look for How to Darken Oak Furniture with Ammonia Fuming.

This is ow the old furniture factories darkened oak wood furniture before applying the finish.  Seen in adds as "Golden Oak".  Also worked on other light colored woods and is great on cherry wood to give an aged wood look.  The ammonia reacts with the tannic acid in the wood.  The stain color lasts a very long time. most of the old Sears Golden Oak furniture still has the stain color.  Has not faded nor turned darker.

Antique Gun Collecting / Gunmaker A E Shanks?
« Last post by cspringsface on Today at 12:23:24 AM »
I am having trouble finding a gunmaker named A E Shanks for a plains rifle I recently acquired. The only marking on the barrel is the name A E Shanks. The lock plate does have a design emblem from Philidelphia. See Photos. If anyone has any insight on this maker, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

  Here's a couple of Jim's Brass spouts, these are a shade bigger. They are also very well made. I asked Jim to make me this one. I had never seen one in Steel either. I was thinking "Outside The Box" and the horn will probably be in the same arena.
