  1. 1

    Use a pocket knife to scrape away the burn and see how deep the damage goes.

  2. 2

    Working with the grain of the wood, use the tip of the knife to scrape away the burnt area.

  3. 3

    Using a brass bristle brush, lightly brush the area.

  4. 4

    Clean up the area with a dry paintbrush. You can use a razorblade to scrape away any areas that were missed and use the paintbrush again.

  5. 5

    Apply Tung oil to the spot with a clean cloth to restore the colour. Allow to dry and apply more if needed.

Tips and warnings

  • If the area still appears rough, use a steel wool pad to sand down the area before applying the tung oil.
