prevent spills from soaking into the oak grain. How old is the table? Is it
I recently bought a table that had a very thin finish on it (maybe a
single coat of sprayed lacquer?), so I wanted something thicker and
more durable than the factory finish. I used Behlen Rockhard Tabletop
varnish - two thick brushed-on coats so far, sanded lightly between.
As soon as I get time, I plan to sand it lightly again, thin some
varnish with mineral spirits, and wipe on a final layer. Then rub it
down with extra-fine steel wool for a less glossy finish.
Hope this helps,
