These are some school chairs and have either a poly finish or varnish. They aren’t that old so I’‘m thinking a poly finish. My wife sanded on of the chairs but that didn’t get all the finish off.
I have some citrus stripper, but it is hard to ventilate the garage/shop this time of year. Any suggestions for a DIY stripper that doesn’t have the fumes? Thanks.

Use fine sanding and coat it with poly-finish, they will return to their best unique and almost new look.

I second the sanding for removals work. You can easily get all the remnants removed with a sander. It would help if we could see the design of the chairs that you’re working on. It might help us to recommend something a little more specific to the situation.

If they were actually school furniture they have a pre-cat finish on them. Sanding or having them chemically done would be the way to go.
