Fixing a piece of old Furniture.
I inherited a chest that my great grandfather built back in 1967, a beautiful piece but it sat at my mothers house for the last 20-30 years until she passed this year. Well it got a little banged up and the finish is not great anymore. My question is do any of you guys have any experience with getting dents out of wood? I heard you could use an iron or a steamer to pull them instead of sanding it. Also I think it has a lacquered finish that I would like to recoat, I don't want to sand it all down if not needed but just lightly sand and put on another coat. What do you think?
