Repairing wood finish

Hi all,

In undoing preparations made for Irene, I managed to pull the finish off the wood in a couple of spots with the tape I had used to keep cabinet doors from flying open.

Has anyone had any experience spot repairing wood finish, and if so, any advice on what worked/didn't work?

Many thanks,

~ Amanda

Amanda,

A lot will depend on how anal you want to get about the finish.

The long-term solution would be to remove the doors, strip off the old finish completely, the refinish them. The fact that tape pulled the finish off of your cabinet doors leads me to suspect that the finish is close to failure anyway.

A spot repair will work, as long as you accept that it's gonna be an interim fix, and may be noticable.

If you want to just tackle a spot repair now, then lightly sand the bare spot with 180 grit paper to prep the surface and to feather out the edges of the finish that's still attached. Wipe down the area with mineral spirits, then put on a gloss, semi-gloss or satin finish to match your existing one. For interior brightwork, polyurethanes are fine. Sand between coats with 220 paper.

Hi PorFin,

I have a PDF from Beneteau called "Wood repair Techniques". If you or someone else can tell me how to post a PDF let me know and I will. Otherwise email me at and I'll send it to you.

Rick,

I've no clue how to post PDF's -- well beyond my computer savvy level.

Maybe the OP will contact you for the file.

(BTW, you may want to edit your posted e-mail address -- the spam-bots could snag yours and flood your in-box.)

Thanks very much for the replies - I think I'm going to have to go the spot root, at least for the time being (I think at least some of the problems are actually on the surrounding wood rather than the doors themselves). Lesson learned - will be getting a role of painters tape to keep on board in case of emergencies.

Rick, I will send you an email (it's my name @ gmail).

Thanks again!
