window, baseboard, and door refinish question

We are wanting to refinish our interior window trim, baseboards, and doors in our home. They are currently natural finish, which is what we want to stay with. The old finish has bubbled and needs to be completely removed. my question is should we sand the old off or use a stripper or both. The window trim has curved molding on top. Also do we have to remove the base and trim to do the refinishing. Last any suggestions as to type of finish we should use to have a natural glossy appearance.
Thanks for any advice.

Interior wooodwork is usually removed to be stripped. Obviously I have not seen it but would think sanding would ready the wood for another coat of ploy/varnish. Both come in satin, semi-gloss and gloss.
