Lets get something straight. If the wood is unfinished, you don’t buff. If the wood is finished, that is, it has a coating on it like lacquer, shellac, or similar, you can buff it.

If the wood is unfinished, sand it until it is as smooth as you want it, then BURNISH it by rubbing it with wood shavings (wood on wood).

If the wood is finished, you can use almost any LIQUID BUFFING COMPOUND containing a very fine abrasive. Personally, I use Turtle Wax buffing compound for car finishes as it is inexpensive and can be found in many places. If you are POWER BUFFING, be aware that the speed of the power buffer must be slow as heat buildup will melt and smear most finishes.
