    Hi Time Furniture finishing

    I do mean Hi Time ! LOL

    This is a water damage piece, It had an oil finish and waxed only. The wood is either RON RON [RUM RUM] or GUAPINOL from South America where the piece was made.

    The cleaner finish is basicly one step ;
    3 part finish
    1/3 rd alcohol
    1/3 rd Turps
    1/3 rd BLO

    Keep shaken or mixed well an use in well ventilated area.

    I started this morning with, purple pads cut into 2" squares, a 1" brush and a squeeze bottle full of the cleaner. Cleaning and area 4x4" square and moving on to the next then the next till finished. after it's all done with a clean soft rag with some elbow grease buff out the finish. The BLO will remain , the alcohol with evaporate and the Turps will hold the dirt. Then tomorrow I will brush on another coat of the solution and let dry and buff out again.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    one thing that makes it very easy when waxing; use one of the round shoe polish brushes for the carved areas. You can get colored toned waxes some with penetrating stain some with out. I like the penetrating stain wax. After the wax is brushed on simple buffing and it's finished.
