Restoring the Natural Beauty: Orange Pine, Stripping 1980s Lacquer From Pine
If you’ve ever encountered the challenge of removing the stubborn orange-hued lacquer from 1980s pine, you know it’s no easy feat. Many chemical solutions fall short of the task, leaving you with the laborious option of hand sanding. At Somerset Reclamation, we understand the intricacies of this process and are here to help you unveil the true beauty of your pine furniture.

The orange appearance of 1980s pine, often attributed to lacquer applied during that era, can be both nostalgic and overwhelming. To embark on the journey of restoration, one must first confront the formidable task of stripping away layers of old lacquer. While certain chemical solutions may promise a quick fix, the reality is that not all are effective, leading many to resort to the more hands-on approach of manual sanding.
