« Part 1: The tear down Part 2 of Buffet Strip and Refinish series no next part

After getting all the old finished off the buffet, actual this piece was very nice. You may see that in the photos I added a second 1/4 inch plywood piece to the second shelve for strength. I will finish this with a veneer for a better looked. As you see I still have two burns in the top of the unit however I am going to stain the top to make it less seen.

It does look good! I’m concerned that you might need to sand the top down past the burned areas, though! I’d be afraid that it might show through quite a bit, but I’m certainly no expert.

Welcome Mpounders :

You bring up a great point which is to know when to quite sanding. For me I feel how smooth the wood is and I go through each grade of sand-paper logically. Looking at the work making sure I don’t “cut” to deep.

I am going to stain the top so my thought is to hide the burn with this stain or at lease my it even smaller.
