Thanks for your insight to doing this. It came out looking fantastic.
By the way, I have an almost exact mate to this table, we bought it at a PBS fundraising auction about 30 years ago. It’s not near as bad as your “before” photo, but not bad enough that I feel the need to refinish it.

Interesting read! I saved the text to read again if I decide to refinish one of the pieces I have around here. I can identify with many of your statements just in the few small pieces I have spruced up over the years.

He just picked it up… and was very pleased with the way it turned out. One of the factors I didn’t mention is that he likes a more rustic look, but she likes the “brand new” look… and it is her Christmas present. Had to take that into consideration.
Once the stain went on very evenly, the two big concerns were drips/buildup of poly and a flawless top. Had to make sure the poly was on thick enough to spread evenly, but thin enough that it wouldn’t succumb to gravity. For the top, it was a matter of making sure I had locked myself in a dust-free room. Honestly, it was stressful.
