Has anyone out there refinished a cane rod? It is not a vintage or even an expensive rod but just want to do it for the experience and fun of it. make it look nice for a friend. already measured out and taken of guides and want to know what type of stripper or varnish remover people have used. i know some breaks down glue used in making the rod so want to hear from some people who have experience. any info would be appreciated. thanks
