    Default Woodworking - Soda blasting

    Hi
    Someone doesn't happen to have a contact, or can do soda blasting on old wood furniture?

    I have a old Imbuia sitting room set that I want to remove varnish from?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Consider using Nitro-Mors paint remover.
    I used it on a sitting room set and it came out 100%.

    • work in the shade.
    • paint Nitro-Mors on.
    • brush it off with water and a brass brush (Imbuia does not mind water)
      (I would even consider a pressure washer)


    Oil with oil of your choice.

    My wife found a kist made from imbuia in a pawn shop which some one sprayed white, paid 200 rondt. Also sprayed the brass hardware gold. I used paint stripper and steel wool, water paper and 0000 steel wool then danish oil. Came out beautiful, scored many points with the missus. Gloves, small and med. cheap paint brushes, paint stripper and newspaper on a sheet of plastic in the garage. Tin of elbow grease, remove hardware first.

    Edit. Use a nylon brush for the hard to reach parts, use an old tooth brush on the claws.

    I had good results with paint stripper on wood. The one you can rinse off with water.

    Consider dry ice blasting. Learnt about it from MikeG, ex of this forum, who used it to strip paint off old beams in his house.
    It has a mechanical effect and the paint is also frozen and lifted off by the evaporating gas. No blasting residue to be cleaned up.

    Google will direct you to places in Pretoria that do it

    PS I haven't used it myself but it looks good

    Thanks for all the replies. Will keep the DIY options in mind but that will be last resort. Time is limited. Dry Ice sound interesting will look at that as well!
