Synthetic Wood Finish:
Sikkens Cetol, Epifanes, Tufshield are products that fall into this
Always use the recommended personal protective equipment
(PPE) specified on the can label. Wear a mask and gloves and use
in well ventilated area.
If possible wash the finish with dish soap to remove grease. Very
important!! Use a non wax paint stripper, or sand with 80 to 120
grit paper to remove the old finish. Do not over sand in one place
as it darkens the wood.
Vacuum and use a tack cloth to remove dust, wipe the surfaces with
an acetone dampened cloth. Tack surfaces again.
Using a bristle brush apply first coat. Tack each day to remove
dust. Re coat daily until you reach a total of four, and do not
not sand between coats.
After coat four lightly sand with a medium sanding block and continue
with at least two more coats. The extra coats give protection against
scratches going through the finish into the wood allowing water
When the surface gets a scratch through the finish to the wood,
touch it up as soon as possible. Once a year, clean wood with soap
and water, sand lightly with a fine sanding block and re coat.
For mahogany, apply Interstain grain filler before wood finish.
It comes in natural and mahogany finishes.
