    Refinishing
  1. I am refinishing two teakwood and oak tables, a V-shaped coffee table and side table. Also one round maple coffee table, 28 inch diameter, plain top and turned legs. Additionally, a 48 inch square dining table, light colored oak. My father refinished much furniture with 60 coats of hand-rubbed pure tung oil, and the oil sealed a number of different woods extremely well. I can't use tung oil since I must refinish inside. I heard coconut oil will hydrate wood well and bring out the Wood's natural colors. I can use this inside. Will it also seal the wood? I know it's thinner than tung oil but thought it might be worth a shot. What kind of sanding equipment should I use? (I don't even know grit to use). I would start with the round maple, I think it's the hardest to mess up. Any advice on this? I'd appreciate any help I can get.
