Sounds like a water based acrylic was sprayed on top and when the heat is added it makes the finish gummy . You can brush some polyurethane on top and that will make for a bullet proof finish.Put a little bit on somewhere and make sure it doesn't raise the old finish

How to Restore a Picnic Table


After several years and a being exposed to the elements, your wooden picnic table can start to look really worn out. You don't need to spend a few hundred dollars on a new one - you can restore your old one. It's a project that will be both fun to do and save you money.
Where do I start?

1. Using a mixture of bleach and water (not too strong), scrub the table really well and leave it to dry completely.

2. Check the table for structural damage; hammer in any loose nails or boards and fill in any holes with wood putty.

3.
Now you need to sand the table down. Sandpaper comes in grain s of coarse through to fine. The worse state your table is in, the coarser sand paper you will need to start with. When you are finished, clean the dust off really well.

4.
Now you can paint or wood stain the table depending on whether you prefer a more natural look or a brighter one.

5.
Leave it to dry completely before using it. Enjoy your new table!

Paint will not dry


Could be the paint you're using was old, sat around too long and was not properly stirred, before applying? or did you apply multiple coats without waiting enough or too long in between? You will have to strip all the paint off using a chemical paint stripper. Then wash off all the stripped with the proper solvent, then wash off the solvent. Make sure the wood is totally clean. Then sand lightly to open the pours of the wood. Apply one coat of primer, let dry, then apply as many coats of paint as you want, just make sure its dry between each coat, etc..

Unable to remove old door handle for Baldwin 5255 lever


They are usally pressure fitted, however paint on the door it self will make it stick.
Take an sharp utility knife and score the paint as tight to the
escutcheon as you can, then it should pry off.
