    Many viewed my previous post about "Anne" the machine/cabinet that I got last weekend from a customer of ours. Thought you might want to see how the old girl cleans up! :)

    Anne, BEFORE.

    I gave the cabinet and the machine a quick wipe down with Murphy's Oil Soap, followed with a rub-down of Howard's Re-Stor-a-Finish. A coat of Howard's Bees Wax with Orange Oil provided the finishing touch.
    The machine itself got a coat of TR-3 car wax.

    Thanks!! :) I'm exceptionally pleased with how she looks now...and I was thrilled when I first saw her all dusty, dry wood and all!
    I think I'm going to pass on the professional refinishing now...the cabinet looks fine enough for me!
