Results? Did you do anything different than the last time?

I just re read your series on the chair.

I’ve used BIX remover before. Nasty stuff even outdoors if you get downwind of it, but it works!

That’s a whole lot of work to stain a chair!! But it really does look great!

Great job Charles, I’ve never tried one of those chairs, I’ll know who to call if I do decide to make one for advice. Very well done. Your Momma’s gonna love this! God Bless, mike

Looks much better. It is a relief to see all your hard work is paying off so well.

Have enjoyed following you on this one, especially with the extra drama:o)
