Has anyone ever used Restorzit ( Based on the pictures it seems to work very well for the money.

But is it a fantasy fix?

I took a peek at the website and it sure does sound wonderful.

Too wonderful, IMHO.

Sounds like a shellac based finish, since shellac will stick to almost anything. The not so prominent cleaner---that has to be used---just confirms that for me.

In my experience with refinishing trim work and wood floors----scratched by pets and children, sanding out scratches is the only way to fix them. Any finish will just cover them and the scratches will still be visible.

And, the product would be a lot more famous if it worked. I belong to a woodworkers website with over 10,000 members---never have seen it discussed there.

RE: Anyone ever used Restorzit?

I bought it and have used it on an old oak cabinet that needed to be "refreshed." No serious issues, it just looked worn. The product did make it look better. The before and after is not as dramatic as those pictured on the website, but it did make a nice difference. I have never used any other similar products, though, so I don't know how it would compare to others.

RE: Anyone ever used Restorzit?

I have never used it but it has me fascinated. My question is this.. has anyone used it on particle board cabinets.. mine have a pine look and the finish is wearing off... also scratches around the knobs.. our home is fairly new.. only 15 years old.. it's a log cabin with pine looking cabinets... wanted the look, not the price when I ordered them.. should have spent more money on the real thing.
