My home was built in 1892. I've pulled up the carpet and discoveried a wood floor of undertermined type. It is in excellent shape with the exception of the 4 layers of paint covering it. I want to refinish this floor. How should I go about removing the paint? Should I use a paint remover or a sander? Is there any good books out there for a project of this nature? The area is rather large. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
