I finally got all of my new treads in. I ended up needing to remove some trim in order to get the stairs installed. The builder fired a boatload of nails in the trim so I some of trim was removed and it is too damaged to replace.
So, at the bottom of my steps, I have one side that will have to be refinished from bare wood. The other side is simply red oak with a poly finish.
My thoughts are to sand down the poly on the pre-finished side and then stain and re-poly. It’s not a lot of trim but I do have to sand the newel post and trim.
I don’t want to use a chemical to remove. I am thinking if steel wool – is that practical?
Thanks to all!
Plan to publish the project. It’s my first real woodworking adventure that really meant something.
