Furniture refinishing is not a quick project. You must be careful stripping the finish as not to damage the wood or veneer.

When refinishing furniture with moldings and other ornate details you must carefully remove all paint or finish from the grooves without damaging the wood.

Drying times for multiple layers of stains and varnishes can also take more time than expected. You can not speed through the old finish removal and expect to have a smooth, clean surface at the end. To end up with a good quality furniture finish, you need to be sure you have the time to devote to the entire refinishing project.
