I love digging through thrift shops, especially when I’m looking for a gift for a special friend or relative, such as my brother-in-law, who loves to golf. When I spotted this vintage wooden shaft 8-iron for just $15, I knew I had a bargain.
The golf club had some issues, including some spots of rust. I did not want to make it look brand new, so I just used a pad of fine steel wool dipped in Minwax® Paste Finishing Wax to remove the loose rust and provide a protective barrier to prevent any more rust from forming.
I used the same Minwax® Paste Finishing Wax on a soft cloth to also revive and restore the original finish on the wooden shaft. After letting it partially dry, I buffed off the excess wax, leaving a satin sheen afterwards.
And now the once forgotten Spalding 8-iron has become a treasured part of my brother-in-law’s “man cave” down in his basement.
Until next time,
Never stop looking!
