and you did a GREAT job too Ray! Thanks.
A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

After stripping, clean the wood really well with mineral spirits and let dry for at least 24 hours before applying stain and/or a clear coat.
I agree, but you can get those sponge sand blocks cheap, and take off any residue/etc with little effort.
Most people don't have the patient to stain well even though it is easier than painting.
Put on THIN coats, and don't be afraid to brush it down with the sponge blocks between coats.

Not sure I understand -
Using a good paint/varnish/etc remover does no harm to the wood, and blasting away at it with a sander is more work and can destroy.
Like I said, you still need to sand after that, but less.
It is just a good way to go.
