No! There is no easy way to do what you want, did you think all of us were using stinky messy paint stripper because we like it, and need to waste our money on slow lethal strippers? If you are lucky and God loves you tomorrow all the finish will fall off, but if you are in the same boat as the rest of us you will need to go out and buy stinky messy paint stripper and get to work. I suggest you first try a new coat of REAL oil base varnish, just to see if there is improvment worth having. Then if the recoated area still looks bad try a nonmetholene chloride stripper, if God just sorta likes you this will work well and you may proceed with a moderately nasty job of stripping the finish, making shure not to get any on the cabe if possible, rinseing with water if required. Otherwise you may need to get the kickbutt top of the line stripper with the high price tag and avoid inhelation, ie. pricey face mask with charcoal filter. DO NOT ALLOW THE FUMES FROM METHALENE CHLORIDE STRIPPER TO INTER THE WORKINGS OF YOUR GAS POWERED FURNACE, WATER HEATER, PETS LYING DOWN CLOSE TO THE FLOOR, PREGNANT WOMEN, SMALL CHILDREN, OR ANY MUCUS MEMBRAINE! PS smoking during this process has some hastening effects also. Or go to a pro.
