New member from NC
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).
