personally, I would strive to remove all the old polyurethane finish. This will take a while. The reason for this is, I have found that new poly really will not anchor properly to old poly.

therefore, I would sand all the poly off. Then I would rough up the underlying wood and sand in the direction of the grain only. this would be to just get a nice clean surface.

Then I would apply my poly, either oil or water based. This depends on you. There are many pro's and con's concerning oil verse water.

I will not get into these as they sometimes cause some people to get upset.

But, you check them out or email me personally and I will get you up to speed on them.

Good Luck,
