ANTIQUE FURNITURE RESTORATION DISCUSSION BOARD

restoring a kitchen table

We have a very nice solid pine table, about 17 years old. It has lost much of its original finish - whatever that was (Briwax seems to be quite common) - and I've tried to rescue it by using Liberon wax and polish remover, followed by Liberon liquid beeswax. It has turned out quite nicely, but despite a lot of buffing still shows fingerprints. I also have the feeling that it will not withstand the sort of use it will be put to - it's our family all purpose eat-off, work at table. Have I used the wrong sort of wax? Do I need to start again? Or is there a finish that will make it more hardwearing?
