d product i can use to remove the last of the paint without damaging / staining the wood ?
What is the wood, solid or veneer, also type of paint being removed. A photo would help.
It is solid wood and the paint looks like old gloss will send picture later .
The wood is solid looks like the paint is left in the grain. Cant upload a picture :-( .
What finish are you planning to use on this item ?
The op wants to know how to strip it for now, what do you suggest DIYDave?
I should like to remove all the paint and then wax it .
Just asking Astra so as I can prepare a quote for the OP
Keep myself busy during the school holidays with some lovely cash in hand moonlighting of course
Do you need an apprentice for 6 weeks or so
That's fine, 30 years ago when it was in vogue I ran an Antique Pine furniture stripping business. I'll send you a message of how to improve the finish ready for waxing.
No thank you, I need someone who at least has a basic idea of quality hand tools and more importantly a good knowledge of how to use them, at the very least being able of producing a finish that is acceptable to a paying client. Thanks for the offer but I think if you keep at it you could improve yourself and given time become a valued member of the community.
Any advice please
I sent you a message based on the limited imformation supplied.
Just ignore...DIYDave is my stalker.
Is that the best you can do Country Boy?
Are you two related ?
Yeah, pretty much
Never get involved in petty name calling on a forum or pointless arguments and have never understood why some members over the years get so wound up by others on here - it’s just a forum and none of us know each other
I’m still in awe of your detective capabilities though, maybe consider a career change eh
No, my mate DIYDave is sadly only DIY, shame really as I think he could'nt teach me a lot.
Petty name calling DIYDave, did you not only a short while ago call me a 'PLONKER' is that not petty?
Separate names with a comma.
