In Response To: refinishing cherry dining table (Nancy)

I would suggest you try a brushing lacquer, Diamond Vogel sell some good ones. The color may need some fruitwood to match the chairs if there is mahogany involved. The paint can be hidden but it detracts from the grain to daub on extra color to hide paint. A glaze can be good for this purpose, and lacquer is a good way to do this as well. Find some old boards or a small item to test this on prior to doing the table. Do all the steps on the test as you go so that when you finish you will see what you will have in the end. Then you can see how tough the final product is. Wipe on poly will be less easy to repair and polish later on.
