I say this usually. I’ve written it many occasions. Perhaps I get the
perception from the numerous years I’ve spent refinishing furnishings.
Regardless of how good or how cautious you might be, stuff nonetheless occurs,
and it’s important to strip off what you’ve accomplished and begin over.
Each skilled or semi-professional refinisher is aware of this
as a result of they’ve needed to do it.
However woodworkers making new tasks normally don’t try this a lot
ending, and plenty of fret unnecessarily about avoiding errors.
An ideal many woodworkers I’ve talked to or corresponded with
have expressed a concern of “ruining” their woodwork, the precise
phrase they normally use.
However you’ll be able to’t smash wooden or joints or glue by stripping and
beginning over. You simply have so as to add a bit of time to the full
you’ve spent making the venture.
Really, I’ve one partial exception so as to add to this. Should you
are staining the wooden and get it the incorrect colour, or resolve you
would fairly have the wooden unstained, you might be in for a little bit of
work. Stripping gained’t take away all the colour, so you might have to
sand to get extra of the colour out of the wooden.
However you continue to haven’t “ruined” something.
