"I second the Waterlox or poly choices. The Waterlox is durable and easy to repair if needed while the poly is very durable. I've had very good results with both."

"Thanks for the information Russ, Very informative. I am a novice that enjoys wood working.  I would like a grain popping finish that is well protected; I saw the danish oil finish and thought it was very nice; even tung oil looks great, but I…"

"Thanks Ken, I looked into the Danish oil and find it as a great choice.  Question: what finish would be best for a dining room table top? Looking for wood protection from fluids/abuse and a glossy sheen. "

Ken Darga replied to Johanne Perez's discussion 'Mahogany Table Top Resurfacing'
"Johanne, My first choice would be Watco Danish Oil Finish in Natural, it'll give the wood a very attractive appeal, and bring out the natural beauty in the wood. You'll only need to apply a single coat---it's not practical to…"

"Johanne, In a simple structure, 1-1/2" long screws will suffice, spaced 2" from the end and at 6" apart."

"If you're working with softwood boards, a 2 1/2" screw will be sufficient. If you're using hardwood, we recommend setting your jig for 1 1/8" material and using a 1 1/2" find-thread screw."
