Default Restored Lyptus Wood Front Door

Remember looking at this job about 2 or 3 years ago ... The Client wanted me to touch this up and It wasn't nearly as bad as these pictures, I recall saying No Thanks. When he called again,I looked at it insisted it needed to be striped.
Nothing Fancy... Just some Remover and then I used some sharp Pro Preps to get off as much of the crud as possible.. Washed down with Lacquer Thinner, then sanded... A Lot... I liked the look of this Door ( Wood ).... Brought it back with Acceptable Results...

A friend of mine who makes custom stained glass front doors puts 6 coats(spray) of epifanes on them before they get install. His doors are great and that stuff makes them glow. Maintenance is every 1-2 years.
