Some of the steps involved in refinishing pianos include:

Applying stripper and brushing in in the direction of the wood grain. Scraping with a knife any dissolved finish remaining. Its important to get a bare wood feel before anymore can be done.  Washing the area down and stripping any areas containing finesse such as details. After the wood is prepared for finishing, it is stained and finished. There are several types of finishes and you should discuss with your piano refinishing contractor to find the best one for your project. We usually give a fine sand in-between coats of finished and polish the final coat.
