Hi, I'm Todd Languell, the Flying Furniture Guy from R & D Wood Shop in Scotia, New York. Today, I'm going to show you how to remove pickled wood finish. Okay. You can see I have demonstration on this piece of wood for you. This has one coat of pickled country white stain on it. So, what you're going to want to do is you're going to get some gloves; you can pour this stripper directly on, or work, oops, or work from a bowl. You're going to apply the stripper; the key point when applying any type of paint stripper is make sure that you have a lot of ventilation. You can start to see that, I don't know if you can, but the finish is already starting to bubble up on this; about this time, you're going to take a medium coarse steel wool, maybe a one or a two and dip it in your stripper. You're going to rub it back and forth along. You're going to want to go in the direction of the grain at this point because you don't want to put any scratches in there that you're going to have to sand off later. You can see this is starting to take all of this pickled finish right on off of there. Now, once you get it to that point and you think that you've got almost all of it off or all of it is off, you can then take a rag, you can go ahead and start drying it off with the rag. And you can see that we were able to remove all that pickled finish right on off of there, almost nothing flat. And I'm Todd Languell, The Flying Furniture Guy from R&D Wood Shop in Scotia, New York and this was how to remove pickled wood finish.
