0000 steel wool dipped into a dish of the liquid stripper. Start to rub in small circles and the finish will dissolve nicely. Wipe with a clean rag. You shouldn’t even need to sand the thing. If you use a paste stripper that needs to be scraped off you will mess up the carving, which may not even be real wood. A lot of times that stuff is a sawdust glue mixture that was molded.

When you are done stripping a panel then you can try to match the new wood with stains.
