    I just want add to my 2 cents about stripping the furniture. I have a Romy stock that I wanted to take all of the finish off of. So I started out with a furniture stripper. That worked but it was becoming a slow process. I wanted to try something was easy and wasn't so hard on the hands and lungs.
    I noticed some OXY-CLEAN in the laundry room. I mixed some up with water.
    2 teaspoons with 12 oz's water. I brushed it onto the stock and let it sit for a short while. The mixture started turning brown each time I applied it. Anyhow
    here are the results:

    here are some crappy pics of my 2 refinished romies. I was originally going to go blonde or a honey maple on one of em, but after trying some red mahogany on one, I decided to do them both this way. I used RTO's oxyclean method, they looked like twins of his, and here they are after a couple coats of tung oil.

    here are the results:
    Did you strip the shellac before using the Oxyclean if so how? How long did you let the Oxyclean sit on the wood? How many aplications to get the stock as pictured? Did you rinse the wood? Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    Thanks,
