    Go to home depot or local hardware store and pick up some paint stripper. Apply it with a brush, let it soak for a few hours, and it will take it off. May need to use an old toothbrush to get it all off, but that should work.

    I'd just soak them in some lacquer thinner for a couple of days - then use a stiff toothbrush to remove the final traces of the Poly - rather than use wood stripper.

    Any "all solvent" Methylene Chloride based stripper would be OK but, some wood strippers have Ammonia and are also emulsified with other water based jazz for easier "rinse off" and they can really raise the grain and goof up fine diamond checkering.
