good luck and remember to wear a mask and work in a well ventilated area. I’m looking forward to the update.

Hey Charles, do you have a card scraper? It may come in handy for this refinish job, like the glue squeeze out in the hard to reach corners.

looks like you have some work…i would love to see how the stain stripper works…how hard it is…and how long it takes…

In your last update the 2nd picture looks really nice along the top—-I am assuming to keep it all the same color you will strip it all…

Good luck…

Hey Charile,
Is that stain for exterior use or for funiture? I need to find some unusual colors for funiture stain. I wonder if Cabot might be able to mix it? Good luck.
