Some finishes are impenetrable by any stripper. That’s
if you flip to stripping with a warmth gun.
My daughter-in-law discovered a eating desk she actually beloved and
needed to refinish it. I used to be visiting, so naturally, she requested
me how one can take away the outdated end, which was broken.
It turned out that the desk was a copy made in Asia,
good sufficient wanting, and effectively sufficient made, however the end was
impenetrable by any stripper. It was a thick, shiny end
that I concluded was polyester…as a result of it seemed like polyester
(consider Yamaha pianos from a number of a long time in the past), not as a result of
I do know a check for polyester.
I made a decision to strive a warmth gun. It was sluggish, however it labored.
This desk was veneered, however it was pretty new, so the veneer
wasn’t glued down with animal disguise glue. Cover glue would
dissolve with that a lot warmth. However fashionable artificial adhesives
are immune to warmth.
I had no downside with the veneer lifting. I simply needed to be
cautious to not burn the wooden.
