65 Wooden steering wheel - refinish Question??

Anyone try and bring some life back into the wooden part - mind is pretty dull - any suggestions? Thanks for looking.

Do you have the stock wood grained PLASTIC wheel, or do you have an aftermarket wood wheel ? ?

If you have the wood grained plastic wheel, there are several places that restore them

Jim H. at the Pony Warehouse used to do that, I don't know if they still have that service.

In my very limited experience I have found that Old English polish can put some life in the wood without making it real slippery.

All wood - tried the Old English scratch cover for dark wood - rubbed it in and boy did it give the wheel new life - thanks for the suggestion -going to let it dry and follow up with some Pledge and buff it in really good.
