Burl wood trim

My woodgrain trim is only a couple of years old, and when I run my hands over it feels just a little bit gritty.

Anybody have any recommendations on cleaning?

You can try claybar as a first step. If that doesn't work, go to a light polish like M205 or SwirlX. Just make sure you tape off the area.

This is what I am using frequently (e.g. once a year): It gives the wood a perfect smooth finish (and smells great, this one is caramel flavored).

Swizol Wood Care Wax

I don't know where you can get it in the U.S. though.

Hey Ang -

Hadn't considered carnauba for the woodgrain (swirl marks). Send pics of how it turns out!

Does it cause any filmy build-up?
