Rare, I get to work on nice pieces of furniture. Seems mostly it's that cheap nut and bolt furniture with the wood plugs of late. The nail polish and nail polish remover spills.
For me, not enough juice for the squeeze, most folks just don't want to pay enough money for refinishing. The hassle of getting the color close to match the other pieces of a set (which are perfectly fine and don't need refinishing....yea, yea) they never want to pay for a refinish of the entire set.
I do work out of a home workshop in the basement, so spray finishes and chemical stripping are a hassle in the winter time. Heating the garage to spray and all that fun stuff. Most of the phone calls seem to come my way this time of the year.
That's just me and my personal experience. I do enjoy the challenge. And the reaction on the customers face is very rewarding, but will it feed the bulldog...doing it full time.....good question?
