Refacing a refacing job


Has anyone ever refaced a kitchen cabinet that had already been refaced once before? How difficult is it to remove the first veneer?

How good is your heat gun?

I never have, but the difficulty should depend upon what material was used as the new face. I have seen 1/4 inch hardwood ply used as a facing and have seen models of formica facing.
The trick will be removing the old facing and leaving a smooth enough surface that will not require too much work to even out.
A heat gun on old formica usually works pretty good.
