Here is Home Depot Canada.

http://www.homedepot.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SearchView?catalogId=10051&storeId=10051&langId=-15&N=0&Ntt=paint+stripper&Nty=1&D=paint+stripper&N tx=mode+matchallpartial&Dx=mode+matchallpartial&s= true

the stuff you posted looks to be for stripping deck stain. I have never used it so I don't know how it will work. To strip my deck I hit it with my 3000 psi pressure washer.

As long as it is a PAINT stripper you should be good. It really isn't hard at all. 3m sells a safe stripper that Rona sells. I have used the same thing here and it works good. You just might need to put more on a stock as the finish is a little more durable than a oil or latex paint. Shoot you can run it through your dishwasher as well if the stock fits. I have done that before. Though the wife might not like it.

Where in Canada are you at?

Most people that want an even colored stain use a sanding sealer or shellac. Then they stain the stock after the sealer of choice is applied. If you are going to use polyurethane varnish do not use shellac as a sealer. Polyurethane varnish will bead up on any oil or denatured alcohol based sanding sealer.

But once I got to the north side of Edmonton, and then began heading west on the freeway and saw Edmonton in my rear view mirror, it was a very nice city.



When we gonna start on that stock of yours. It's easy

Something we learned from refinishing kitchen cabinets is you can use a restoration finish ("Howards Restoration") from Home Depot. It is 2 parts - a staining liquid and a Bee's Wax coating. Lowes has a similar product but it isnt the same.

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Howard-Restor-A-Finish-16-oz-Wood-Finish-Restorer-Walnut-RF4016/100199071#.UgpCNPuW9OA

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Howard-Feed-N-Wax-16-fl-oz-Wood-Polish-and-Conditioner-FW0016/100592963#.UgpCVfuW9OA

Best we found for application is 400+ steel wool. Works much better than a rag and creates a very smooth finish even when used for the Bee's Wax. A day or so later you may want to wipe the stock with a clean rag to remove any excess coating and buff the finish.

I use citri-strip as the fumes are not harmful and it works very well. I use tung oil for finish. It is more work but worth the satisfaction of an old school finish.
