I put some ammonia in a small plastic bowl in the larger container, sealed the lid, and let this sit for 50 ■ After “fuming” for 24 hours the tent was aired out and the plastic removed. Here you can see the construction of the tent frame, and the change in color. 24 hours. Satisfied that the final result would be close to matching, I built a frame from inexpensive 1 by 3 pine and covered it with 4-mil-thick plastic sheet, as shown above left. I tucked the plastic under the wood frame at the floor, and secured it to the frame with spring clamps to get an airtight seal.

Appropriately, the tusks should seat with their center at the shelf tenon. Fit the tusks as necessary, and tap them into place to make the whole case rigid. Now take it all apart one last time and sand everything to 150 grit. For a finish, I used a simple dark-colored gel stain, wiping off the excess until I was happy with the depth of the color. I then top-coated the case with a couple of coats of lacquer. The nicest thing about moving this bookcase is that after you knock out the eight tusks, everything fits in the trunk of a compact car.

White oak is much more of a furniture wood than red oak, giving a smoother and more refined appearance. In addition to using this wood, I also decided to use the same method of fin- ishing that was originally used, fuming the finished piece with ammonia, and using shellac followed by wax. Tannic acid in the wood reacts with the fumes from the ammonia, yielding a distinctive coloration in the rays and flecks, as well as in the rest of the wood. Staining, glazing and dyeing can come close to the color of an original Stickley piece, but fuming can match it exactly.
