First project - restoring faded walnut cabinet
I've recently bought a solid Walnut cabinet with the intention of refinishing it as my first woodworking project!
Overall in good condition, however the colour has faded slightly. I want to restore the colour and will change the door handles.
I am a complete novice and any advice would be appreciated - do I need to sand it down before I can re stain it? Do I need to stain it? If I want to have a darker walnut colour, will sanding help or is the wood faded permanently?
