    I prefer stripping furniture first, before sanding. For a piece that has veneer, if I wish to keep the wood finish, and want a fresh finish, I use Homer Formby’s refinisher, which is basically a lacquer thinner. Using fine steel wool, it removes the shellac finish, which is what most old furniture has, but does not remove all f the stain. From there I stain and finish. If the finish is in pretty good shape, cleaning, then waxing with high quality paste wax like Briwax gives a beautiful finish. I use clear Briwax paste wax as a top coat on painted finishes. It gives it a lovely glow.
