How long do you think is appropriate to let the piece gas off after fuming the process is done, before applying finish? overnight? A few days? or just however long it takes for the smell to go away. Ill be wrapping the piece inside a marine grade finish so I don't wanna lock anything in. Thanks in advance!

The fuming doesn't introduce much moisture. Mostly gases as the result of chemical reaction unless it was wrapped in a hot environment. Even then, the moister doesn't penetrate much. So. to be safe, a few days in a dry atmosphere should do it. Good luck

If memory serves, when I did my Morris chair a few years ago I fumed one day and started putting on poly the next. Worked great, no issues. The chair was in my heated shop overnight.
