I am assuming that you used a neat Polyurethane type of varnish which you had not diluted with white spirit or similar. If that is the case, you need to use a proprietary paint stripper such as Nitromors.
Follow the instructions on the tin and you will be able to remove the varnish with a scraper.
Then wpe all surfaces with a clean rag dampened with white spirit.
Let it dry completly and resume oiling!
That should sort it for you . . .
