Oil & Vinegar - Not Just For Salads

using 3/4 cup of oil & 1/4 cup vinegar to restore wood on old furniture without having to strip the pieces - trying this now! First of all, I’ve used white or apple cider vinegar and vegetable or olive oil…whatever I had on hand.

How to Use Epoxy Resin Like a Pro

Replace Rotted Wood With Epoxy Putty - For small repairs, you can use the kind of epoxy putty that comes in a two-part roll. But there's a better choice for repairing larger areas of rotted or damaged wood. Abatron WoodEpox and J-B Weld Wood Restore are two examples of two-part epoxy wood repair putty.

How to Restore Scratched, Stained, and Worn Wood : another pinner says, "for watermarks - mix a thick paste of olive oil and salt and rub onto the wood - leave it for about 30 minutes. The salt draws out the moisture and the oil feeds the wood. Used this many, many times!"
