As part of a project the HO bought a rolling library ladder off ebay. It’s in very good condition, but needs a little refreshing, which could easily be done with a new coat of varnish (generic term). But … HO thinks he wants a different color stain as well. It’s red oak with a light brown stain. I don’t want to sand it down to bare wood, so I’m thinking a light sanding followed by some type of gel stain maybe … ?
I’m sorry, I thought you wanted it done the right way.
