It's done with ammonia fumes, and can be done by yourself if you have the time and space fore it. It smells A LOT! Just pine the wood over a bath of ammonia and cover with tarpaulin. The darkness ore shade depends of the time you smoke it. I don`t how it is in the states but here it`s easier and better to buy treated. It gets more uniform in the color. Enjoy :)
