Help trying toremove blonde finish from oak woodwork - have a big mess
A few details would help. They don't charge by the word.
Are you using a liquid or paste stripper?
Is the wood work flat or profiled?
Are these wood pieces in place or being stripped on saw horses(or floor or ...)?
How are you protecting the surrounding areas? the
Thanks - I have a houseful of blonde window trim, sliding doors and door trim. The trim is basic trim design - flat wth a slight curve. Very interesting history - my dad cut oak trees, milled and built the entire house of oak - yes windows and even the stud and two by fours. He made all the woodwork - the oak is not all the same. The finish is shelleck or varnish put on in 1964 - taking it off with paste stripper and laquer thinner. It is the blonde that is the nightmare -deep in the grain. Working over vinyl floorng so protecting it with just drop cloth. Any tips would be helpful - using menards store brand stripper.
