I haven't seen that one before. Looks like one of the better examples of Mid Century Modern. Check Glenn's tutorials on restoring cabinets. You should be able to get it cleaned up quite nicely. ...

Truly a labor of love if you decide to tackle it. The unfortunate reality is you might have more in materials invested by the time you buy the stripper, etc. than it will be worth when you're done. ...

Good question on the oil stains. Glenn probably has some better ideas. I would try wood bleach. Trisodium Phosphate.
You can find it in hardware stores in the paint section IIRC.
