When I bought my dining room table off Craigslist, it came with a few marks and spots on the surface, but it also came with a set of instructions from the previous owner. Every few years, I was to maintain the surface of the wood by polishing it. I learned that it is actually a pretty easy process, but that being said, I would prefer to go through it as infrequently as possible. If it's time to restore the surface of your wood furniture, this step by step guide shows you everything you need to know and
how to lengthen the time before your next polish as much as possible.
