Hi there, done room after room of paint stripping in our rennovation but struggling get old varnish off a mahogany fireplace we have. The worst comes off but is still a miserable ingrained dark stain/varnish.
Have tried the nitromorse route…so, so result. Have used a carbon tungsten stripper, also ok. But still the result looks poor.
I don’t want it dipped ideally as it tends open up the joints and suchlike. Read about the Fluxaf product Russ mentioned in his article but not sure how applicable it is for this application. Maybe it’s the perfect solution.
The mantle itself is not so complicated shape…straight flat sides, curved front elevation, then straight insets.
Would be grateful as always to move from amateur efforts to professional ones. Look forward to hearing some ideas. All the best
