We're busy sanding back the paint on our Rimu stair stringers (I think that's what they are called - the bit that goes up on either side of the stairs and holds the actual steps) so that we can varnish them to make a feature of them but we have some areas where the previous owner has put white gap filler in to spaces between the stringer and the wall and we're have a hard time getting this out to replace with wood putty. Does anyone have any advice/recommendations on a good way to remove the gap filler?
Welcome to Workshop. We're really happy you could join us and look forward to reading more about your projects and plans. Please post whenever you need a hand - we have plenty of very helpful members who share their experience and knowledge.
This sounds like a tricky job. Can I ask what you have used so far to try to remove the gap filler? And could you perhaps reply with a photo of what you are dealing with? It might help our members get a better idea of the problem and how to address it.
Great, thanks for the update @JD. Glad to hear that you have made progress.
Give us a shout if you need further assistance with anything.
