Excellent advice guys, thanks.
Now, about this stripping with Easy-Off oven cleaner deal. I was cleaning my glasses this morning when i noticed a speck that would not come off. Upon closer investigation, it looks like a burn mark - melted plastic. Looks like the Easy-Off came back at me and worked its magic. Could of been my eye.
If Easy-Off is THAT freaking strong, couldn't it burn the wood?
