Removing Nicotine Stains from a Wood Hutch?

How do I remove nicotine and cigarette smell from a large wood hutch? I have tried a wood cleaner and some came off. It is so thick you can feel it. But I am afraid of ruining the hutch; it's my mother's. It is so bad I won't bring it in my home. Please help. There has to be a way to remove this.

Depending on what other liquid cleaners you have used, the way you describe the problem sounds more like you have cleaned/stripped the varnish off along with the nicotine! You may have to strip it all down now and start all over again with new stain and polyurethane or varnish OR, you could just paint it any color you desire!! DO NOT forget to put a primer on it first though.

Use any good brand of chalk paint like Annie Sloan or Dixie Belle and you won't have to prime it. I recommend Dixie Belle...great coverage!
