I have an old cabinet that I would like to redo. It has a dark cherry stain on it and some scratches. What's the best AND EASIEST way to get this thing to look half decent. I was looking a a product today that is stain and polyurethane in one step and it says no stripping required, ideal for use over previously stained wood. So, what do you guys think about this idea? Sorry, that I can't help with the dipping problem.
