The scuff sanding will work, but I m thinking that table has seen some furniture polish (think silicone) over the years and that will keep pretty much anything form adhering….except shellac. If you are 110% positive it s never been cleaned with that crap from the grocery store, you re good to go. Otherwise, I d clean it thoroughly with TSP (the real stuff, not the fake) and then coat it with dewaxed shellac.

Hello Fred,
Thank you very much for your help!
Yes it has been polished many times before.
I will clean it thoroughly and apply dewaxed shellac first.

Could I do the same to the kitchen cabinets ? They look so dehydrated and dry. Over the years the finish, maybe a pre-catalyzed lacuer, industrial finish most likely, now definitely looks dull.
After the table is done maybe I can do the cabinets the same way.
