Exclamation

A little helper of mine ran a fine piece of steel wool over a piece of furniture with a polyurethane finish, leaving light scratches behind! Do I have to put another coat of poly on, or can I wax them out? If I can use wax, what kind should I use?

Poly:

Sorry, but wax won't do it - you need to apply another coat of finish,

Poly:Thanks for the info. I'm not really great at applying polyurethane. I usually end up with it not leveling well (pooling, etc.). Have you ever used wipe-on poly, and is it more easily controled as a refresher or final coat?? Thanks!

Wipe on poly's only drawback is a lack of thickness in the coat, but for your paplication you don't need much.

Just sand out the scratches (240 grit wet/dry paper), scuff the rest of the top and have at it.

Another alternative (after the initial prep) is an aerosol.
