I’m refinishing a Lane cedar chest. I Remove the white paint using citristrip. The Venere under the white paint has many scratches. I try to apply a Scratch concealer, but this did not work. I’m wondering if there is still white paint in the scratches.

I’m not sure how to proceed. Suggestions?

Is the veneer thick enough that you can sand out the scratches?

I think so. I’m giving it a try.

It’s going to be tough, given the number of scratches and many are against the grain.

I sanded the veneer. I was able to remove most of the scratches.

I have put on 4 coats of Pure Tung oil 24 hours apart. I’m wondering if I should put any topcoat on it. If so, what — wax, poly, etc?

The cedar chest will not get much use. Will be used to store things we don’t use often.

Thoughts?

My go to finish for low use items is shellac. Clear or amber depending on the color I want.
