In Response To: Chinese rosewood table top (David Beesley)

Alot of these tables are finished with oil finishes, and once watermarked the finishes are very difficult to repair. What products have you tried? You'll need to wash all the oily residue off...I like turps better than mineral spirits as it seems to have a bit more solvent strength...guts grease well and dries faster..although when turps gets old that isn't always the case...and commercial Wax Washes like the Behlen or Mohawk.There are some products like WilBond that are cleaner/degreasers/surface prep agents that work well, but will eat away lacquer and shellac almost on contact. For an oil finish it would probably work well, but test in a small inconspicuous spot to see..
