Best way to restain an antique.
I have a couple of antiques I want to refinish. One looks like it has the original stain on it (oak rocking chair) and the other I picked up off Craigslist (a walnut bookcase) that had a bad refinish job done. I want to strip them and refinish them. Can you all tell me the proper techniques/products to use to do this type of project. I've refinished before, but it was many years ago, and my dad was still alive to help me. I want a nice smooth finish in the end.
