How To: Strip Paint from Antique Woodwork
It's no easy feat to strip paint from antique woodwork. The task involves great care, but the stunning result very often makes the effort worthwhile.

Instead, gently apply a chemical stripper and use suction and dental tools to carefully remove layers of old paint.
