It is new furniture made by Amish woodworker and finished by one of his suppliers (varnished) so I haven't done anything yet.

You could try a lite colored Old English Oil. this might put some of its natural colors (like when you got it) back into the piece.

ask the Amish worker if you still have contact. he might even be able to give you pointers on how to prevent in the future.

How to Get Water Stains Off Wood

I am repairing an old wooden window sill. Would it be best to apply varnish to the wood before putting latex for the final coat to keep water away from the wood so the wood would last a lot longer.


No. If your wood is still sound and you want to apply something to help preserve the wood then something like a wood preservative like Cuprinol would work wonders. If you have wood that's getting a little pithy, I've gone so far as to scrape away the really soft stuff before applying a wood hardener (Mimwax?) followed by bondo to fill in the areas that got scraped away. This was followed by a good primer and then paint. Don't forget to caulk with a good caulk and remember to always leave a path for water to drain away/out of your window and siding.

What do I use to refinish a pine table?


Do you want it to still have the pine look?
if so, use a clear oil or sealer/varnish/urethane.
if not, stain it whatever family/species of wood you like.
then seal it.

How to stain wood veneer


You would need a stain that would penetrate the wood veneer. A good oil based stain should be able to penetrate all the way through. Lightly sand the face of the veneer with 220 grit or higher sand paper. I use a sanding block made out of rigid foam and sand by hand. You will need to keep the veneer wet with the stain until it penetrates. I would stain both sides of the veneer until it penetrates to the depth you desire and then wipe off any remaining stain. You may need to press the veneer until it dries thoroughly! Good luck.

How do i finish a doorway threshold going from hardwood to linoleum, there is a height difference, the hardwood is lower.


You need a reducer strip. Find a local hardwood flooring supplier and tell them the height difference between the two floors and the length of the opening. Once you have the right reducer find a wood stain that matches your floor. Next stain the reducer and finish with either a high gloss or matt finish polyurethane coating available in a spray can. Once the piece is finished your ready to install it. If the subfloor is wood then you can nail it down and putty the holes. If your subfloor is concrete then you will need to glue it to the floor with some liquid nails. Apply the glue to the bottom of the reducer put into place and weigh it down for 24 hrs.

We removed all the wood trimming/doors inside our Catalina 30 sailboat. We want to do a clean/revive type job on it. The wood is teak. How do we proceed?


if the teak is bare teak --- a light sanding with a sanding block should be good and then follow that with a good rub down of teak oil ( sea-fin teak oil is a good brand ).
if the teak is finished teak --- and you want to remove the old finish and sand out any stains(?) then you will need to use a more aggressive sand paper and finish off with a lighter sand paper,, clean up with acetone, use a good tack cloth and start applying varnish -- the best varnish that I have ever used is a brand called ' Epiphanes ' and you will either want to use a ' matte ' finish or a ' gloss /semi-gloss ' finish. personally I have found the 'matte ' finish to look better and it brings out the true beauty of the teak itself. ( make sure you follow the sanding instructions between coats as this will give you a nice smooth and sharp look ).
enjoy the water ---

How to stain and finish plywood bookshelve


Well, you sand perfectly. If not new wood, consider a stain enhancer product. Then try using MINWAX stain, let it completely dry 24 hours or so, and then three coats of Minwax polyurethane, in the sheen (glossyness of your finish) and lightly sand with 280 or so, before the last coat.

Paints and stains


GF Salad Bowl Finish

Create a beautiful and safe finish on wooden bowls, cups, spoons, countertops and butcher blocks or any wood surface that contacts food. Easy to apply (just wipe on with a soft clean cloth) it achieves the sheen and durability of a varnish. Dried film is non-toxic for food contact 72 hours after drying. Additional coats can be re-applied at any time if maintenance of item becomes necessary
On Line store: generalfinishes.com
I don't know about paints, but there are stains, such as raw linseed oil, that work just fine for food-safe surfaces.
suggest you do some exploring; plug in'food-safe stains "in your search engine.
Hope this helps...
