Default Re: Refurbishing a veneered radio case

Totally agree with everything David has said and I certainly wouldn't advocate using steel wool or vinegar on raw timber/veneers.

The approach described in my previous post is used by furniture restorers and applies to the removal of accumulated dirt on top of the original finish. Care is needed to ensure that the original finish is left undamaged. This is quite possible using fine steel wool and light pressure only.

Hope this clarifies.
