Hi, I'm Todd Languell, The Flying Furniture Guy from R and D Wood Shop in Scotia, New York. Today, I'm going to show you how to restore worn wood finish. You can see that this chair has got cobwebs all over it. The finish is a little piqued and kind of worn out. So what I like to use is I like to use a product called Howard's Restore a Finish. You're going to put the Restore a Finish on with a rag. You're going to just pour it on your rag liberally. You're going to wipe it on your product, your furniture, be mindful not to get it on the seats. If you need to tape off the seat, go ahead and tape off the seat. You can see that it's going to cover any of the chink marks a little bit of the scratches and it's going to give it an overall better look. I'm going to go right over the cobwebs, right over the dirt, right over all of it. Go ahead and wipe it down. If there's any areas that need extra attention, go ahead and use steel wool on them. If not, you're going to go ahead and you're going to wipe this on. You're just going to wait a minute. You're going to go ahead and wipe it right back off, and once you get it completely wiped back off, you're done. This is Todd Languell, The Flying Furniture Guy and this was how to restore worn wood finish.
