My friends oak table did not have a very good finish on it, it looked to me to have never been filled. During its 20 years of use moisture made use of the crevices to undermine the finish and damage the wood.
I started by stripping the table and leaves, then scrapped (with a card scraper) the deteriorated wood and the surrounding wood according to the depth of the damage. Half of the table lost 1/32. I then filled with hard wood floor fill and sanded to 220. Next a sanding sealer and down to 220 again. After four coats of water based poly wet sanded to 400, two coats of wax was applied and buffed out. All of the sanding was by hand and it took me five days to complete.
