I have an antique sewing machine cabinet. It's oak, dark and dull. The door on the front feels veneer. Will this be safe for a veneer?
Asked by: jojojojojo
Hello. Veneer can be hard to seal. We recommend that you test on your own as our products have not been tested successfully on veneer surfaces. Regards, Minwax Customer Service

1 qt. Antique Furniture Refinisher is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff! This stuff is made in the same location as Formby's refinisher if you look at the address of both cans. worked very well on removing the old finish off some 1960's benches. Just make sure you get some heavy duty gloves as latex will not be strong enough for this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It worked! I used this to remove the finish/stain of and 10-20 year old table from craigslist . I have used many strippers and none were this easy. Not saying this was a big challenge for a stripper, but all the others I used would burn your skin off bad, smell worse, and be goopy mess. For this job of removing the factory finish on old this made it simple. I used the steel wool and a couple rolls of paper towels. I will be using this product again for an old original finish. This did a table top of 32"x 70". I would need another can for the whole table. If you want simple and effective this old table this is your product. Chemical Gloves and drop cloth should be used. I used cheap nitrate gloves and thin poly drop cloth, BUT I used 10 pair of gloves and my drop got some careful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great stuff but wear the right gloves Used Antique Refinisher to strip and old coffee table. Worked great with OOO steel wool, but make sure you have the right gloves for the job. The product is 51% acetone, and only Butyl gloves will work without dissolving. Nitrile gloves will last about 10-15 minutes before giving out. It would be nice if Minwax actually included that info on the label instead of just saying "wear rubber gloves". Not enough information, Minwax. Unfortunately, Home Depot doesn't sell Butyl Gloves; at least not as far as I could see. They are much more expensive than nitrile and latex gloves - about $38/pr at Uline but there are other online places to shop around. Once you have the right gloves, make sure the room is very well ventilated. Steady and prolonged inhalation is hazardous to your health. Would have given a 5-star rating if Minwax stated on the label exactly what kind of gloves to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver!! This is truly a life saving product! Trying to refinish a crib and dresser was quickly becoming a nightmare with all the time, and mess of using other products AND hubby and I still couldn't get into the little detailed areas to get the old clear coat and stain off. The original finish was super thick! Finally, as I was browsing Home Depot's paint isle for the 4th time in 1 1/2 days I saw the picture on the Minwax Antique Refinisher can and thought "ah ha! That's exactly what I want to happen! I want my finish to just melt away and leave the bare wood!" Well this product did just that. Pros: The product strips all previous material off almost instantly, with very little effort beyond a simple wiping motion. It doesn't smell horrible, more like acetone nail polish remover, so I don't feel like I was gagging at all on the smell. It didn't burn when coming in contact with skin, though I'd still wear gloves just to be safe. It doesn't damage the wood at all, and it dries almost instantly so no waiting around for your furniture to dry before sanding. Con: It is a bit expensive for how much I personally needed of it. It took 3 cans to strip the dresser alone. HOWEVER, I think a lot was wasted because I used the recommended steel wool which made the finish thin and smear and then it took additional product to wipe off the thinned finish. Do yourself a favor and just use an old rag. Completely soak it and then wipe the wood. There is less smearing, and the product will wipe off in the same motion. Plus, you'll save money not having to buy the steel wool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from useful product, but use in ventilated area! Used this product to remove the finish from an old table and it helped a lot. Just be sure to used it in a well-ventilated area or outside and not for very long periods of time. Also, as others warned, don't rely on nitrile gloves. I used both the regular thin blue gloves and a set of thick nitrile gloves and this stuff dissolved both. Lastly, depending on the size of the project, make sure you have enough steel wool as the finish that you're removing will eventually collect in it and goop up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I've used this to refinish furniture and it works great; however, there are a few precautions. It works best when there is only one layer of paint and it has to be a thin layer. Secondly, in my personal opinion, the wood seems to appear that it isn't as porous and accepting of stain as if I had used a stronger stripper to remove the old paint and stain. Overall, I would recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a fan The store employee really sold me on this stuff. he said that he had used many types and this just takes it right down to bare wood and worth the cost. For what I believe is a poly coated pecan stained desk, it too k forever to get the ploy off and didn't get off much stain. The fumes are horrible and it eats Nitrile gloves. I wanted an experience like the picture on the can. Once I regain my senss from the fumes, I will go to the local hardware and try something else.

This stuff is my favorite for removing varnish and lacquer especially on spindles because you can get in the tight places with a rag or steel wool and you do not have to make a giant project out of stripping a rocking chair.not for uethane . Most of the time I just use a shop rag to remove old finish if I'm not intending to sand.This way I can control the evenness of the fine residue left over . use superfine steel wool or scotch brite if you intend to stain before using antique oil finish or water based lacquer as your topcoat. .also minwax antique oil finish melts 100 year old chapped or flaked lacquer flooring and woodwork around windows and doors.and smooths it out without having to strip. Tung oil 100% takes months to dry hard.
