Ok, Two coats it is! It does look really nice, and seems to have dried fully after a day and a half. I should mention that this is an occasional use end table, which will probably only hold a drink, or a book, etc. My next thought is, I was going to buff on two coats of Feed and Wax but now I’m wondering if that will offer enough protection. The wipe on poly is sounding like something I should consider. Will wipe on poly provide a more protective surface or would you stick with the wax over oil finish? What would be easier to repair later if it got scratched or gouged (or water stained)? When company is over I’ll leave drink coasters out on it, but you know how that goes haha. Thanks experts!
