In Response To: Re: 2 old dressers (jim crowder)

For me, the 00 steel wool is a bit too coarse, but Roger has a good method otherwise. The Scotch bright pads work very well on old finishes. The purple ones are very rough and the green ones will work like 000 steel wool, but the white ones are the finer of the bunch, more like a 0000 steel wool. The advantage is that the scotch bright pads won't leave little metal filings behind, as they are anoying in the wax and finishing process. Also I feel they don't scratch as severly as steel wool or sand paper, and follow contours very well. A trip to your local library is the best bet, there you can find a lot of good books on restoration and refinishing. The Furniture Doctor is my favorite source for furniture repair and refinishing.
