Chemical strippers and brushes.

I'm with Evan, chemical stripper and very lightly brush it. One thing I have found is you want to let it dry well between attempts at getting the finish out as if the checkering is soaked it will tear out easily. This all depends on how course the checkering is as well.

I’ve used gelled methylene chloride and a soft tooth brush. Apply the stripper with a small paint brush, let it work a few minutes (but I do not let it dry), then brush out the checkering. Repeat if needed. Success has been very good.
