The interior 1 x 6 wood frames have
about 3 or 4 coats of paint on them.
I would like to strip them and restore
the wood to its former beuty. I have
began to strip the doors and cabinets
but i have not attempted to strip any of permanent vertical wood trim.
The strippers i have used are the semi-paste
variety and will not adhere to a vertical surface(at least I do not believe it will).
Does someone out there have any expertise in this matter? I would appreciate any do's or

You can try using a heat gun. As soon as it bubbles scrape it off. Have the heat gun leading so that you can scrape behind it as the paint bubbles.
