In Response To: Polyurethane Problems (Maxine)

Ouch! Sounds like a real mess. My advice would be to strip and start over with a catlyzed lacquer or varnish. They will give you good protection and can be worked with. I do not know if you can put a water base poly over an oil based poly. I is very difficult to repair poly finishes with any product. You might try sanding the entire surface level to 220 grit then try overcoating with the water base. The 220 sanding will give the surface some "tooth" for the water base to grip.
