Denatured alcohol on a cotton pad will remove the old finish. Change the pad to a fresh face as it gets dirty. With practice you can remove some of the old finish and leave some to provide a base then add a couple of coats of shellac and polish it with 0000 steel wool. Using wax on bare wood will contaminate the wood and make it very difficult to put on film finish.
