Orange Shellac Removal?

Many pieces of old furniture were finished with a heavy orange shellac.

What is the best way to remove that type finish short of professionally "dipping"?

Shellac will come off with denatured alcohol or methylene chloride stripper. Some of the safe strippers, such as: Safestrip and cirtustrip will do it, too. Dipping furniture is really hard on the glued joints.

Hope this helps.
