The Memsahib put a gun to my head this morning, so I am in the middle of refinishing our tiger oak dining table and buffet - the tops only. I used a finish restorer on it a few years ago, and it did a great job of matching the existing finish, and I have more than half of it left. I have taken the scratches and stains down with 220 grit sandpaper on my ROS, and it looks good, nice and smooth. I am planning to wipe on the stain restorer once I am quite sure the table top is dry after wiping off the dust. I didn't see any noticeable effect on the grain. Oce this dries, I am planning to use the Minwax Tung Oil finish I bought last year for another project, but didn't use on advice I got here.
I remember being told that the 'Tung Oil' product I had was Tung Oil in the sense that a hotdog is pork. (Not those words exacttly, but....) Anyway, will it likely put a nice shiny finish on our table without undue labour on our part, or should we do something else?
