Refinishing dining table.

jackie asked 10 years ago

I would like to use my dining room table as a kitchen table. It current has years of wax on it. I would like to put a finish on it that will hold up to dishcloth wiping, etc. Do I need to remove the wax before starting? From what I am reading, it sounds like my best route would be Acrylic Urethane would you agree?

Thank you for any help you could give me.

Hi Jackie,

Yes – you need to remove the wax. That's not easy, as it went into the wood. I'd recommend some heavy duty abrasing…

If you can get it, I'd recommend an oil based lacquer. It fits better to possible remnants of the wax.

Good luck, Evelien
