In Response To: Re: tiger oak (James Schooley)

I just acquired a home in Providence which contains extensive raised panel tiger oak wainscoting. In several rooms the wainscoting is painted white, but in the main stair hall and up the stairs, the wainscoting is unpainted but somewhat dirty.

Question: How do you restore the unpainted wainscoting? How do you bring back the lustre of the wood? How do you treat or seal the restored wood? What are the best sealants? Linseed Oil? Poly? What will the tiger oak look like when restored? Will it be golden or reddish? How do you get an even finish when you have some soiled parts, like the bannisters?

Thanks for your help>
