You have just described one of my best reasons for avoiding poly, hard to remove. Try adding some acetone to your stripper, if it is not a metholene chloride paste type stripper, that will jazz it up a little. Next try putting a sheet of plastic wrap over the stripper to allow it to work longer. A saw dust scrumble and old scrub brush may help grind out the details. Try putting saw dust on the stripper, after thirty minutes of soaking, then grind it with the scrub brush, then sprinkle on more acetone and scrub some more. Lastly choose a less problematic finish like shellac or lacquer, for the next coating.
