In the process of refinishing an old dresser of mine and ran into some issues with the stripping of the lacquer or shellac. I have used acetone in the past to take off the finish of similar projects and tried citistrip once based on the hardware store recommendation (did not work very well for me).
for this one I used acetone again and it went well on the top. However on the sides it is coming off but there seems to be a very heavy coat so it is taking much longer. Does anyone have a recommendation of a more efficient removal method.
thank you, no expert and just developing refinishing as a hobby here so all recs welcome. I ultimately just plan to refinish with danish oil in neutral tone.
