Eames DCW clean up

Hey all,


I found an Eames 1948 DCW (Evans/Herman Miller sticker still in great shape) for $20 on Craigslist last week.


I’m still not sure if I will keep it or sell it, but want to clean it up a bit. Was thinking that some tung or boiled linseed oil applied lightly with steel wool should do with the trick and not risk damaging a pretty old chair.


Does anyone have thoughts about that or other recommendations? I’m almost positive it is walnut.


Thanks in advance!
