Extremely blotchy finish - large areas of blotch on birch - almost as
if it got sprayed with some sort of sealer.
With the following givens: don't care about seeing the grain and would
like to finish asap but cannot tolerate a splotchy finish - which of
the following solutions is going to provide the best results:
1. Strip (sanding and/or chemical) and refinish.
2. Many, many layers of polyshades.
No can do on the planer; the affected area of the piece is by design,
inaccessible to a planer or jointer.
Would a chemical stripping remove anything that might be there? There
must be other posts with good info about handling this but my googling
skills are not so mad on this one.

it really depends what the blotch is. you could try some heavy duty
solvents like laquer thinner or mek to leach whatever it is out,
followed quickly by a wash coat of shellac to keep it from returning
to the surface.
