+1 on the Johnson’s wax…it’s inexpensive, a can lasts a long time, and it makes the top pretty slick without interfering with the ability to finish the wood. I wax my tables 2-3x per year and keep them covered with a piece of 12oz duck cloth when not in use. The cloth doesn’t let the humidity from the garage settle directly on the steel and breaths well enough that moisture doesn’t accumulate underneath.
