Hello and thanks all for your time.
Newbie question here.
I’m refinishing an old university surplus wooden chair that looks somewhat like a Mission or “Bellingham” chair, I’ve taken most of the old lacquer off with a palm sander. The chair back is made up of 6 slat-style spindles. It resembles the attached image in form (but it’s bare nicked up wood rather than this beautifully finished piece.)
To get the finish off the spindles I started using the Dremel but quickly realized it would turn the entire chair into sawdust in minutes, so I stopped.
I have no good way to get in between those damn spindles, or for that matter get up snug where two pieces of wood meet at 90 degrees!
What’s the standard reasonably non-destructive method for doing this?
(I wear a respirator and safety glasses btw.)
