How To Dull A Glossy Finish On Wood
Try to follow the grain of the wood as much as you can.
How to dull a glossy finish on wood. Any way to dull a high gloss finish. Rub the oil into the finish going with the grain of the wood. No matter how good a finish looks it will always have surface imperfections.
I use 320 grit wet dry paper and a bit of soapy water as a lubricant. If it s thick then rub the surface with 220 or 320 grit sandpaper. To level things out i like to sand by hand using a piece of plywood faced with cork.
Apply some soapy water or mineral spirits to the surface of the piece and then start sanding the surface. Dull the finish for your wood with the addition of a new flattening finish. The soapy water helps prevent sandpaper clogging.
Just a quick once over will do just fine. If the finish is thick you can start with coarse sandpaper like 220 or 300 grit. Once you re finished wipe the surface down and repeat the process with the next grit.

I offer no guarantees do it at your own risk. Load a pad of 0000 steel wool with a small amount of paste wax and rub the finish. First wipe down your item with soapy water to remove any debris or dirt on the surface.
