I have a house that was built in 1929. It has nice wide (or is that tall?) base board moldings.

For the most part they are in good shape, however, there are spots where the varnish is worn away. There other spots where the finish is worn down to bare wood. I am not thrilled about the prospect of removing the baseboards for refinishing.

Do ya'll have any suggestions for refinishing the base boards on the wall. OR is it just better to remove the boards.

without looking, I can't think of anything you can do on saw-horses that you can't do while its on the wall... and in those day's they used huge spikes to attach the mouldings... damage risk...

if its just worn varnish, why not light-sand em (180 grit) and re-varnish? they'll be beutiful. make em too perfect and people will think they're plastic...

ps.. mouldings are measured by width, whether they're vertical or horizontal..
