ANTIQUE FURNITURE RESTORATION DISCUSSION BOARD

a more durable finish for a dining table

I recently inherited what is probably a 1930's mahogany table. When I got the table, the finish had yellowish scratches in it. I've figured out how to restore the finish (I think it has a lacquer finish). But I've found that it's too easy to scratch the finish to make it practical for everyday use. Doe anyone have suggestions on how to make the table useable? We've thought about applying a poly over the lacquer. I've also read about using wax to protect the finish. Any advice would be welcome.
