    This is a bathroom door that got left open with somebody must've repeatedly taking showers or something that affected the stain that it came with. What would be the best way to fix this? I'm not planning on doing the other side of the door because although it's 40 years old it's pristine everywhere else My thought is to send it to uniform and then restain it unless somebody has a more useful simple idea. Where I'm doing this I don't have access to a lot of tools and all my cool stuff here in the states so it's going to be hand sanded, ughhhhh!

    Hand sanding would take many days, it needs to be sanded down to bare wood.
    A random orbital sander would be 100 times faster.

    I know:down::down: . There might be a power sander in the basement I'm just not sure. It's hard to get hands on decent cheap tools in that part of Bavaria. They chased Walmart out by 2000 and it's too bad. Buying tools in their hardware stores is pricey and Aldi only has anything like that on occasion.
