Hi, I'm Todd Languell, The Flying Furniture Guy from R and D Wood Shop in Scotia, New York. Today, I want to show you how to remove sticky oil finish from wood. As you can see here the stickiness is just the oil and dirt from your hands over a lot of years of pulling this chair in and out of the seat spot to sit down. So we're going to try to remove that for you right here today. I like to what, use what's called a Howard's Restor-A-Finish, it comes in different colors. You want to apply this directly to your steel wool, once it's on the steel wool you can go ahead and use it as you would any other type of stain product. You're going to wipe it on, scrubbing a little bit here and there, focusing on the areas that need attention. Once you rub it in for, you know a good 2 to 3 minutes, up to 5 minutes, you're going to be able to then go ahead and wipe this product right back off. Now look at that. Okay you can see that all the gumminess is gone, you have almost a clear spot all the way across, where all that gummy finish was. Hi, this is Todd Languell, The Flying Furniture Guy and this was how to remove sticky oil finish from wood.
