    Parkay Oak table

    I picked up this table yesterday and stripped it in the flow over tub. After that I took it out power washed the stripper residue off and realized it was press board. I told my son he quickly got the bucket of Lacquer thinner and we scrubbed down the table and this morning everything was fine. No swelling anywhere. The table has a white glaze the then faux streaking on wood tones to bring out the grain. I didn't think much about it before I started the stripping. usually I will up the charge a couple hundred just for GP I hate working on Partial board furniture.

    I agree Dave it ain't worth the effort and time.

    Very Close Larry. Jarrod was a big help getting the lacquer and helping me wash it down to dry out the water in the partial board.

    Close call.

    Dave, where are you located? and what finishing/refinishing products do you use?
    I am inbetween Houston and Galveston, Tx. I am currently using mostly Gemini products from Wood Finishers Depot. Sherwin Williams reps were here the other day to try to get me to convert.
    I recent started getting into mirror/piano finishes and that is addicting even though it required a lot of work.
    I am about to try ML Campbell's "level Sealer" for a deeper build. Have you ever tried it?
