Renovate a garden table by sanding and oiling

The wooden garden tables are degraded under the combined effect of weather, temperature variations, but also the sun's rays and especially the UV it provides. If the wood is very degraded, you do not need to use a stripper or a stripper: go directly to a physical stripping. The pickling disc on an angle grinder and the delta sander are made for this job. An application of teak oil refurbishes exotic or southern woods (here eucalyptus)
