Hand Rubbed FinishAs a woodworker, I'm sure you've seen furniture pieces in someone's home or even in a second-hand store that were painted, but upon closer inspection, you noticed some real craftsmanship in the woodworking to build the piece, enough that it saddened you to see that someone chose to cover up such great workmanship.

Well, with a lot of patience and some effort, such pieces can be restored to their intended beauty. In Wood Refinishing, learn a number of steps to removing the old paint from such a project, then preparing it for a stained and protected finish. You'll put in a lot of work to rescue the project, but in the end, I'm sure you'll feel it was all worth it.
