Re: Restoring Interior Wood

most oil turns teak dark .. not so great. i would go with the lemon oil too. but it will never have satin finish.

Re: Restoring Interior Wood

Screw the oils. Look up "French Polishing" on YouTube. Wipe with a towel loaded with denatured alcohol, follow with marine varnish, dabbed onto a piece of teeshirt, wadded up, and ABRADE like hell the surface using varnish as a lubricant. Do small patches. Do it several times until it looks perfect. Forget what anyone else says, I KNOW EVERYTHING WORTHWHILE. OBEY AND BE HAPPY.

Re: Restoring Interior Wood

Thanks for the tip everyone!

I plan on cleaning and scrubbing really well...I think originally, there was oil put on.

I will first try a test area and see how it goes...I also read about Watco oil for Tartans...but I like the idea of having it be a bit clearer than darker...Would like to stick to an oil process but open to others...Not sure about the French Polishing as it looks like it leaves a shiny surface...

Good, idea only being be careful what you put on doesn't grow mold, I don't know if tung oil does, linseed or what, but I've seen mold actually growing in wood, and once it starts that, I don't know how to get it out. It can't be easy

Re: Restoring Interior Wood

Murphy's oil soap does good job on annual basis to clean grime off. Don't know if same on bare wood though.

I've done a lot of furniture restoration. Clear Formby's doesn't change the color... It melts the old finish and blends dry or worn areas. It hides scratches and leaves a natural satin finish. I've used it with everything from maple to oak, cherry, mahogany, and teak. Just pour a bit on a rag and rub.

When you say clear Formby's, do you mean Formby's Tung Oil?

Re: Restoring Interior Wood

Sorry. I lied, it's Howard Restor-a-Finish. But I think Formby's has something similar.
