One common problem with antiques and older furniture is buckled veneer. Once the veneer begins buckling there are a few remedies to stop it from ruining the look of the piece. Before you go the expensive route of going to the refinishing shop check out this do it yourself technique.
Here is one of the tricks of the trade to fix buckled veneer on furniture using New Life Wood Conditioners in a few easy steps:
- Soak the veneer with New Life Wood Moisturizer. Keep applying with a brush until the veneer is thoroughly saturated and lies down flat again. Wipe the veneer and surrounding surfaces clean.
- Fill a syringe with glue and squirt the glue between the veneer and body of the furniture and clamp to dry.
- Once the glue is dry, brush or spray on New Life Tung Oil Finish to reseal and refinish. New Life Tung OIl will blend with the original finish for a great looking finish.
These simple steps will save you from having to take the furniture to a refinisher to have a veneer “cut in” done, which never looks just right no matter how good the refinisher is.
