Refinishing oak cupboards - May 29th 2000

Question from: Tim
Winnipeg, MB

Dear Shell,

I am inquiring about refinishing our existing oak cupboards. I believe that the dark stain is of a varathane product and would like to know the best way to clean and refinish the cupboards. These cupboards are in very good shape and are worth the effort.

Thanks, Tim

Dear Tim,

1. Rub cabinets using Super Fine Steel Wool (0000) and Contact Cement Solvent.
2. Wash cabinets after solvent with my Shell Busey’s Home Cleaning Formula rinse well and allow to dry.
3. Apply 2 coats water based urethane i.e. Minwax or Flecto Varathane Diamond Clear Finish apply with a poly or nylon brush.

It’s just that easy.
