really nice piece of wood !!
how old is it ? how has it been stored ? has it been properly dried before you got it ?
my avenue of approach would be using the “less aggressive” methods first.
then, slowing moving up the ladder as required to obtain the finish you want.
then down to the bottom of the list with card or cabinet scrapers, 320 grit paper, etc.
oh – there is no truth to the rumor that “elbow grease” will stain raw wood !!!! (as in hand finishing).
