Yesterday I got given an old solid wood kitchen table made from pine wood which I’d like to restore (a bit). I do like the wood grain but do not like the colour. A darker colour would be nice. Should I oil or glaze the wood? There are many different conflicting opinions online and no definite right or wrong as far as I can tell. Now I know this isn't exactly computer modding, so if this post is breaking any rules please feel free to delete it. But this is one of the best DIY communities I know of so I am hoping for some tips. Edit: I have used oil to restore a wooden cabinet or a door before. Glazing doesn't sound much different or more difficult. However I cannot decide on which product to use as the table I use right now is a cheap IKEA pos.
