In Response To: Restoring old oak corner display cabinet (Sam Tilley)

Skip the vinegar and warm water, any paint thinner or lemon oil will do a good job of removing most old wax and dirt. Some 0000 steel wool will help but don't over do it that stuff is like fine sand paper. Any good bees wax will help with a color enhancement and add protection. You may want to use a colored wax fill stick, from the paint store, where dings and scratches are obvious. One can add a little oil base paint to their carnuba or bees wax to give it color if you feel you need that. Don't cover too large an area with the wax befor rubbing off the excess, work in small areas and then move on.
