World News Features RAMAX New Life

Dear Dan (Covert),

You didn’t overstate the potential of your mother’s remarkable New Life Wood Moisturizer. You may remember that I was one of the media guests who stopped by your table during the HAT travel show last Sunday.

I brought all four of the RAMAX products home with me. Yesterday I used the moisturizer on the dining room table and sideboard purchased by my grandparents at the turn of the century. The mahogany was badly dried out and through the decades, a series of inappropriate furniture poslishes had caused damage I thought could be repaired through extensive refinshing.

After 2 treatments with New Life Wood Moisturizer the results are amazing: The wood grain shines through on the table and the sideboard. By combining the moisturizer with the New Life Furniture Masque applications, old water marks and other scars have disappeared. All that with the delightful fresh orange scent as a most appealing bonus!

I was so inspired I decided to see if the cream polish could remove an unsightly, and seemingly permanent, stain on a formica surface caused by the red foil wrapper on a holiday plant. With only one application the big red blob faded. A quick treatment with furniture masque, followed by a final wiping with cream polish eradicated the stain without any damage to the surface. It looks better than new.

I am happy to recommend RAMAX products and look forward to utilizing the tung oil finish on antique desk I recently had stripped but hadn’t finished.

Repairing Buckled Veneer – 3 Easy Steps

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Fill a syringe with glue and squirt the glue between the veneer and body of the furniture and clamp to dry.
  3. 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.
