Having been a professional restorer for 36 years. I would not cost any surface with oil . Only the person who put their interpretation of a finish would know. Furniture can be finished in just about anything . I would only use shellac polish. For many reasons. The drawback is you need to use coasters . Don't take my word for it. Try it.

Full time Furniture Maker and Designer can answer most furniture making, restoration, and repair questions. I come from a long history of home repair, and boat repair and have been a licensed builder in MA for 25 years and have engaged in most remodeling and building problems.


I make furniture and cabinets full time in Boston and have been working with my hands for 25 years. I have been classically trained at the North Bennet Street School ( have interest in contemporary designs and contemporary materials. Often, I use composites, laminations, carbon, and fiberglass incorporated with classic joinery, finish, and design within my wood projects. I use veneers, solid domestic and exotic wood. My influence in these materials came from house building, boat repair, and the furniture-making trades. In house building, I have apprenticed in: framing, drywall, plumbing, electrical, masonry, finish work and cabinet making.
