Fuming is a process in which wood is exposed to ammonia vapors over time, resulting in natural wood veneer taking on a darker, warm color, while retaining many of its original characteristics. Fuming can produce a variety of different shades within a single veneer flitch, so it is recommended that a type sample be requested for approval.
