Ok, I guess I’ll need to buy lots more sandpaper. Guessing I’ll use 80 grit to get the finish and stain off then 150 and 220 before coating. Any tips on how to get the stain around the rounded trim pieces?...120 grit and lots of elbow grease?

Is there another good brand of pre-stain, stain, poly besides General Finishes? Maybe one of the local lumber yards will carry something other than the usual minwax, cabot, and rustoleum. I know I can mail order but would rather source locally.
