I've inherited some trad. pine furniture & I want to clean it up and protect the wood against further abuse. What's the best way of doing this? Any help would be welcome or referral to relevant websites. Thanks.
it all depends on what finish is, ie laquer, wax or what varnish.
if its varnish then i suggest that a good rub down with 320 grit sand paper or if its waxed the a good rub down with 0000 grade wire wool then finished with a couple of good coats briwax.
