In Response To: Varnish removal on scrollwork table (Erin Hanley)

Lacquer thinner and denature alcohol mixed 50/50 and applied with a clean soft cloth will take varnish off slowly. The trick is not to get deep into the finish under the varnish. Turn the rag to a clean surface as it gets dirty. With practice you can feel the varnish soften and lift. Then let dry for a week polish wtih 0000 steel wool and then paste wax.
