We recently bought a stained pine furniture piece which became damaged
in transit. We called a furniture repair person to make it 'as-new'
but are quite dissatisfied with the results. He used tone finish to
blend the filler, but made it far too dark and ended up covering some
painted detail. Is there a way to remove the tone finish without
damaging pre-existing shelac or paints???
Thanks in advance!

It depends. The Mohawk stuff will come off if wiped with lacquer
thinner. If the next layer down is shellac, you'll probably be OK, if
it's also lacquer, you may have some problems. You'd probably be
better off completely stripping the piece and refinishing.
What does the repair person say about the poor work?
