This may be the wrong place to ask, since all of you pseudo intellect males aren't very handy, with the exception of a few, but I need to strip my cabinets next Monday or Tuesday, and was wondering what was the best way to do it. Any suggestions? Should I just go to Home Depot and ask some guy in the paint department? I need to strip them down to bare wood. InaGo to your local hardware store (OK, Home Depot) and get some Jasco brand Paint and Epoxy remover, it comes in a gold & red can. You can use a putty knife and rags to remove the paint after it bubbles up, but the best way to strip doors is to remove the door, place it on a flat surface, apply the remover, and after the paint bubbles up, spread coarse sawdust all over the affected area. The sawdust will remove the paint and excess thinner without scratching the surface. Use good rubber gloves and rub the surface and sawdust in a random motion. Use wadded newspaper to wipe off the excess in detailed areas like raised panels or scrollwork. Use a small putty knife in the corners and edges. This is best for soft-medium grain woods. Go to a cabinet shop and they will most likely give you some sawdust for free.This is not an easy task. The easy way is to ask a local cabinet/door shop how much they would charge to "dip" the doors for you.No matter what, give yourself plenty of ventilation. DubI found the TA thread "titillating",one of the best yet. Women talking about underwear, aaahhhhhh!Oh hey...I love hanging around the house in boxers..guess I can even tolerate the breezy thing;-)Now, give me a man's tee back t-shirt..and I'm jammin'.... ahhhhh.... 1ncbitinThe sexiest thing in the world is a woman wearing one of my shirts. ( and nothing else )
