I’m new here!

I made some speaker stands and I’m planning on doing the fuming method and have a few questions.

What is the final grit for sanding before fuming?

Is the whole idea of fuming to skip the dying &/or staining process?

After fuming do I apply a top coat or is there several steps to making the grain pop?

I feel that asking some one to sit here and type out a process when it could be searched by yourself is rude and inconsiderate, not just you, there is 5+ a day. What next, you want someone to read it to you?
My rant of the day!!!

What’s rude are your responses. If you are bothered by the question, don’t respond.

To Trevor,

Welcome to Lumberjocks. I am not familiar with fuming, but after reading about it seems like it is more work and trouble than using a Danish oil or stain and then a poly finish. I’ll let someone with more fuming experience answer your specific questions. Please feel free to keep the questions coming – its how we all learn.

A guy joins LJ to ask a woodworking question and he’s rude for doing so. Come on.

Heres how I would have done it. In defense of my comments.
Hi, I am Trevor and knew here, I am thinking about fuming some oak speaker cabinets, I have googled some info on it, has anyone here done it? How were the results compared to dye/staining?

I don’t ever recall anyone on a woodworking community getting welcomed with such a rude response to a question before as TrevorR did. You’re the one being rude not TrevorR. I wonder how that response will effect anyone else that wanted to ask their first question on LJ.

Welcome to LJ TrevorR and don’t let that rude 1st couple of answers run you away. Asking questions and getting proper responses is how we share and learn together on the LJ woodworking community board.

So how many of you in the above post, spent your time to do his search for him and post them here? All I Googled was ”’ How to fume wood”’ and all those I posted were on the first page and read them to see if they were relevant.
What have you done to answer his questions????

Doing research is great. And I imagine Trevor was doing exactly that when he stumbled onto our forums. And I’d also be willing to bet that there are inconsistencies in the fuming process in all of the links above. So Trevor probably is looking for a 2 sided conversation to clarify some things. I don’t blame him.

Welcome to LJ Trevor! Fuming is a somewhat antiquated process because that kind of traditional finish is replicated through a much easier finishing schedule using dyes and glazes more often than not. There are still craftsmen/women that do it though so good for you if you want to tackle it! I can’t be much help with fuming, but if you’re interested in another route to achieve that type of finish, let me know and I can offer some suggestions.

A mind reader, “You imagine”’ ”’I took his post as reality”’ I did not imagine it, read the links I posted B4 making any assumptions on there info, or are you lazy too, because you know what assume stands for!!!

If you read the original post, and some of the links I posted you will realize he read nothing on the subject.
