Circa 1850 Furniture Stripper

Circa 1850 Furniture Stripper removes old paint, varnish, shellac, lacquer and urethane - even multiple coats with simple brushing. Because it contains no water or harsh chemicals it is safe to use on fine furniture. It will not disturb the wood's natural patina or raise the grain, and it will not harm glue joints or veneers. Circa 1850 Furniture Stripper is non-flammable and almost odorless. Furniture stripper has a goopy syrup consistency that cuts through paint film. For gel formula that clings best to vertical or exterior surfaces, try Circa 1850 Heavy Body Paint & Varnish Remover. Furniture Stripper does not require any afterwash or neutralizing. Made by Swing Paints.

    I own an old Martin guitar with an intricately carved face. Carved themes from folksongs made this a one-of-a-kind instrument, for which I had been offered several thousand dollars. I sent it to a luthier to fix a split inside brace, and to my horror, he had heavily shellacked the carving, thereby ruining the value of the guitar.

    I needed to strip the shellac off, but did so with my heart in my mouth. If the product also dissolved the glue, or loosened any of the parts, the guitar would have been totally ruined.

    I used this product... very carefully! It easily removed the several layers of shellac without harming the glued parts, and further, it did a great job of removing the coating of even the deepest carved parts. What a great product this is!

    I felt like this was an average product. On a flat surface it works well. But I struggled to get it to do much on vertical surfaces. The product just ran down the face and didn't have time to work on the wood. I put 3 coats on and it still had varnish on the wood. I might buy from [@]t next time.

        We're using this product to prepare vintage light fixtures for restoration for our new home. Many of these arrive covered with countless layers of old house paint. Most strip nicely with just one treatment, but even the worst ones are clean as a whistle with just two coats. This product is very user friendly; minimal fumes.

          I've used Circa 1850 stripper to restore/refinish antiques for many years. I've tried other products but nothing comes close. It literally melts away old finishes. Anyone who does not like this product is probably trying to rush the job. Keep the work area wet & be patient, the old finish will just melt away. It will melt away your gloves as well, so be sure to wear the appropriate gloves!

                      Used to remove 44 yr old finish off teak and holly floor boards. Because it evaporates quickly, work small areas and sometimes requires working into the surface to be removed with the brush. I applied with brush and used a Maple Scraper, then finishing pad. The surface left behind was very clean, without any residue.

                      This was my first time ever stripping anything. I totally ENJOYED the experience. I used it on my front door. It was easy to apply, didn't cause a mess, didn't drip, didn't smell and it worked like a charm. I am ready to tackle any other project now that I have discovered this wonderful product.

                      Comments about Circa 1850 Furniture Stripper:

                      I recently purchased this product, Circa 1850 furniture stripper, to use on an old gunstock.

                      The original finish was about 52 years old but that didn't affect the stripper at all. In about twenty minutes and with only ONE application of stripper the stock was done 100%! This also included clean-up time.

                      In only a few minutes the stock looked like it came right off the stock carving machine with zero residue, no old finish, and NO damage!

                      The only work I had to do was turn the stock to put stripper on. It did everything else.

                      After using this stripper for the first time I can definitely say that for future wood projects this is going to be the one to use if you want excellent results.

                      Thanks guys, your product is #1 in my book.
