OK, hopefully I have the file sizes small enough. The bowl was fumed for 24 hours using household ammonia. The bowl is about 12.5" in diameter. (And, yes, I lack even basic photo skills.) Here goes.

Curly Maple bowl, band painted with tea. Before fuming.

Curly Maple bowl, fumed 24 hours, no finish.

Curly Maple bowl, fumed 24 hours and finished with Mahoney's Walnut Oil.

I think it appears somewhat darker in person and I was surprised at just how much the Maple darkened even without the tea. Must have had some level of tannin in it. I do like the results, which would be more apparent if I had any skill at photography.
