Use Formby's they are great and they have refinishing kits. Most Home Depot type stores have them: http://www.formbys.com/products/

What, start a thread correctly before? :lol:

Edits 20 minutes later don't affect the subject displayed... :(

What is the surface you are trying to refinish? Is it in good shape, or is it an "antique"...

I depends on what the existing covering is. There is a tip about dipping a cotton ball in acetone and testing an area, if notinh happens you have a polyurethane and thus need a different stripper then for varnish.

This is detail on the Formby's box I purchased, and may be on their site as well.

it's in very good shape, the surfce is just coming off. Not an antique, solid sood, (I'm guessing oak)
