Hi, I'm Todd Languell, the Flying Furniture Guy, from RND wood shop in Scotia, New York. Today, I'm going to show you how to renew old furniture. I like to use a product called Restore Finish. Restore Finish is a really great product. There's a couple different applications. You can either use a rag, or you can use steel wool. What you're gonna do is you're gonna put it on your rag or your steel wool. You're gonna rub in the direction of the grain. And what the Restore Finish does, is it kind of melts, blends, cleans off all the old dirt, all in one application. And what's really nice about this is that the average home owner can take care of their furniture this way. You're just gonna wipe it on, and you're gonna wait just a minute, and then you're just gonna wipe it back off. After you use the Restore Finish, you're gonna use the second step of the process, it's wax, and it's a beeswax that goes with the Restore Finish. You're gonna put the wax on with the rag. It' really easy. You're gonna go with the direction of the grain. Once you've got it all wiped down and 100 percent coverage, let the beeswax dry for 20 minutes. After your 20 minutes, you're gonna just go ahead, and you're gonna wipe off that beeswax. You'll put the wax one, you wait for 20 minutes after, and then you wipe it off. And you can see the contrast between the sides that have been applied and haven't been applied. And the front to what's been applied and what hasn't been applied. This is Todd Languell, the Flying Furniture Guy, from RND wood shop, and this was how to renew old furniture.
