    Sorry for the bad quality pic, I don't have my good camera with me.
    I still need to apply one more polyurethane coat to it in about 25-30 min to finish it off, but this look is going to be the final product.
    What did you use to strip the old coating off?

    Hey, the real question should be: what did you use to get the crappy old finish off the Romy wood as it came out of the box?

    you can use acetone, a wood chemical stripper, sand it off and my favorite for shellac based fiishes like the Romy's is Denatured Alcohol and 0000 steel wool. YOu can strip a furniture set to bare wood in half an hour......

    Boy, my Romy had nothing that could be stripped using alcohol. I've used this on shellac finishes before, but the romy stuff was some sort of tough coating - at least mine was.

    I wound up using a chemical stripper and had to scrap it off. It peeled off after the stripper application - like peeling an apple.

    I removed the finish with Oven Cleaner... lol It took about 4 coats of it to remove it! Check SurplusRifle.Com In their tutorials on how to refinish wood. Very simple and fast.

    Easy off or any oven cleaner can screw up the wood, I would recommend against using oven cleaners on Wood parts

    Rob -- that furniture looks really nice.

    I didn't realize that oven cleaner would strip it.

    Oven cleaner can turn wood greenish-gray. Much easier to use acetone or alcohol. Oven cleaner is way nasty on your lungs too.
