for your info no removing the finish. However my concern is with the stain, which is the reason the doors look so bad. If I get the finish off, then what? how much sanding would be required to get out that stain.

I am attaching 3 photos:
ed1 is what I call a cherry stain, looks great, the only one they didn't touch.
ed2 are the three bedroom closet doors, much darker
ed3 is closeup of one of the three doors; middle panel was messed up somehow, maybe sanding across grain.

Can you tell what kind of wood this is? We both LOVE old wood, oak floors etc but how would we get that stain out? or at least fix those darkened areas?
