Question by rutabaga: What is the easiest way to refinish furniture?
I bought new furniture appx. 6 years ago and it has been all but destroyed by my lovely children. Anyhow I am not a crafty or handy person, so I need to find out what would be the most straightforward way to refinish my cherry wood coffee table and dining room table? Any tips would be appreciated!

Best answer:

Answer by Brutally Honest
I’d recommend starting at the library or any home supply/building store. Look for a book series by Sunset or Home & Garden; they have how-to books on EVERYTHING.

Be warned: Furniture refinishing is not cheap, easy or quick. It takes a lot of work & patience. It may be that after you have done some research, you might find it easier to hire a local handyman to do it for you.

    Seeing whereas you have children, I am gonna give you the VOC free (or at least minimal) (Which are also pretty quick and straight forward) methods I can think of for refinishing your furniture. Also I have made a BIG assumption that these tables are either solid cherry or quality veneer which has never been stained)

    STEP 1 (tools required)
    orbital palm sander (i recommend Porter Cable VS333 +/- $ 75) and pads (80, 150, 220 grit)
    Set of good cabinet scrapers (about $ 13) (try
    good quality brush (polyester)

    STEP 2 removing old finishing
    Start with the sander (using the 80 grit and start removing the finish, be very careful at the edge, not to break them or cut sander hoopdees in them). Once you have removed this finish from all the flat areas, Use the cabinet scrapers to get into the curved areas (ogee edges and such), then resand the entire thing with the 150 grit, this time do the curved areas by hand with the sand paper (playing a Bach concerto during the hand sanding is a really great way to fool yourself this is a fun way to spend the evening). Repeat the entire process with 220 grit. Vacuum all surfaces . . .

    STEP 3 (new finish)
    If the tables look spotty or splotchy, chances are they were stained and the sanding has removed unequal amounts of stain at different areas. So choose a quality water based wood stain (low VOC), that is SLIGHTLY darker than the darkest spots remaining (this will even the tones of the wood). Apply the stain according to the label directions (including the dry times). Then apply the first of three coats of water-bourne poly in whatever finish you desire (gloss, satin, other), hand sanding lightly between coats with the 220 paper,
    After the three coats your good to go (you’ll probably wanna go get a table saw and a bunch of other tools and start furniture making business, or you’ll give the sander to your neighbor and vow “Never Again” ? (Trick of the trade, if you wish that ultra slick, smooth feel of HQ woodwork, apply a light coat of carnuba car wax, just like you’d do for a car)

    Hope this helps, let me know if you need further info

    there are alternatives for just “sprucing” up these tables as well.
