Hey everyone,
new guy from Raleigh, NC. Looking for advice and inspiration and this seemed like the place. Current project is restoring a set of old barrister bookcases which I bought in sad, sad shape. Slowly stripping off all the coats of paint, repairing some veneer, and bringing it back to it's bright finished glory. Need some help getting the paint out of the grain (stripper and scrapping has gotten 99% of it, in a few places it's pretty deep in the grain), tips on veneer repair (sides and shelves are solid but the top is veneered, I've got it apart and bought some white oak veneer to fix it), and some thoughts on how to rebuild the glass doors (they are all missing and I've never made any sort of doors before).

You'll get the info you need here if patient, but what pays off is hitting into the right section and posting issues (and pictures if you can).
Welcome to the wood ticks.

Welcome to the forum.

Aardvark is correct pictures and correct category does help. You should be good with this question in the intro because allot of members welcome in the new guys. If you don't get your answer you should ask again in the wood finishing category.

Welcome to the forum. I just got home from a trip to Raleigh to visit relatives. I used to live there (over 60 years ago).

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.
