We bought a used house and have questions/problems with the kitchen cabinets and front door. The finish on the cabinets (and around the wood stainded base boards) is wearing away, splochy, no longer smooth and uniform nor shiny. Lemon oil only makes the doors shiny. I tried applying a matching stain with finish, but, this did not appear to have any effect. What can be done to the cabinet doors and baseboards to rejuvinate the old finish?
The problem with the front door is similar in that the finish/varnish is worn away. The inside of the door also has scratches in the wood from a dog. What can be done to refinish/rejuvinate this door?
