Hi. I have a 1917 row house, i’ve been doing the same thing – removing layers of paint from all my trim and doors. For the removable stuff, doors and moulding, I take my stuff to Bob Reed. You can look him up on Angieslist or Yelp – It’s called “the stripping workshop.” Most recently I took all my upstairs doors to Bob. He stripped the doors down to bare wood then repaired damaged panels. I restained them with Minwax Polyshades 1 step. They look like new.
Here’s his contact info:

I’ve been struggling with the non-removable wood. I’m very interested in any other advice you get to your post.
