My old dining table was 1.8×1.8m square Tasmanian Blackwood and served us well. But we decided to change to a 2m x 1.4m table to fit in the real dining room as opposed to the lounge, where it sat previously.
The original table (pic 3) was finished using Scandinavian oil and several coats of Satin WOP. I decided that I would strip it right back (Pic 2) and re coat with Organoil Hard Burnishing Oil. This stuff resists heat and spills very well and you can use surface cleaners with a truly cavalier attitude.
Pics 1,4 and 5 show the table in situ, with its Red Gum chairs and also a shot of the top to give you an idea of the finish that Hard Burnishing Oil gives you.
