I haven’t found a better way to clean up the totes than by hand. If its varnish, scrape it first then sand it. I start with 60 and go up to 500 grit.

The knob I chuck in the drill press.

More info on my restore blog.

Edit: and you are right, they look in pretty good shape. They should clean up great.
