I have two old oak chairs that need refinishing. They have obviously been previously refinished, but poorly, and I believe polyurethane was used for the finish. I have attempted to take the old finish off using MinWax Furniture Refinisher, but it has little effect. I have seen many suggestions for removing polyurethane, but does anyone on this forum have experience with something that really works? It seems that in this day and age, there must be something that can easily remove a polyurethane finish.
There's nothing that "easily" removes poly. The best bet is to get a chemical stripper. Follow directions on can. It will probably take 2 - 3 applications, but it should help remove the poly.
