I de-greased mine, got a rack to set over a large pot of boiling water to set them on and steam out the dents, sand, fill, sand some more, and finish. Anyone have any tips or tricks they would like to share?

Many guys just place the furniture in the dishwasher to swell dents and clean the wood.

I put TPH cleaining powder (purchased at Lowes) and boiling water in a 5-gallon bucket and let the wood soak. It removes any old cosmolene or oil and raises old dents.

My Yugo wood came out VERY nice afterwards.

thanks,
Ron

ETA: It also removes any old stain or varnish on the wood. Don't use if you want that original stain.

I've never done that myself. I'm just relaying what I've read from other members here.

I am going to be doing this soon myself. I have several sets of Romy wood and one set of Yugo handguards.
What grit sandpaper did you use?
Did you wet sand or dry sand?
Sand with the grain or does it matter?
How long do you steam/boil/dishwasher the wood to remove moderate denting?
Has anyone destroyed furniture using any of these methods?

I hope this isn't taken as a thread-jack, it seems relevant.
