Marks on wooden cabinet

lintamaMarch 30, 2009

I have a medium oak drinks cabinet, similar to the 'Old Charm' range. It has several ring marks and what looks like the polish or stainer has worn away. I spilt Canada Dry mixer on it and the next day it left a dreadful whitish patch. No amount of polishing makes any difference.

What can I do to restore the finish?

Any suggestions welcome please.

It is probably moisture in the finish. Quite common and easy to repair. I use the cloths then clean up the oil and adjust the sheen using lacquer.

"Polish" means different things in different locales. Want to elaborate what you mean by it?

Thank you. I am just not sure what the finish is on the cabinet. If I could have your email address, I could send a photo of it or is there a way to add a photo here?
