    I burn my stocks witha propane torch and then sand with 80 grit and then 240 grit before staining and clear coating comes out nice

    How to prep my wood
    You do realize you just set yourself up, big time.

    Heating the furniture does work well, you can use a soldering torch, oven (low heat) or set it out in the sun.
    I'll check for the name of it but there's a paste you put on wood that draws the oils out. No it's not Vasoline.

    And Welcome to the forum.

    The finish on the romys strips off easily with denatured alcohol and a dull scraper blade. Just soak it till turns white.

    Hello &

    I like to get my furniture back to the original wood.
    I use BIX paint stripper. Scrape and use a Scotch-brite pad and stiff brush. Repeat the BIX if necessary. Then wash them down real good with water. After all the finish is off. Soak in a 25% Bleach solution for a couple of hours. Weight the item down so its submerged. Rinse really good and blot dry. Let the parts air dry for a day or 2. Then sand, stain and use a finish of your choice.
