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?

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.
