    Restoring Finish to Mahogany Dining Table Top

    Posted by Michael on 10/9/2002, 1:02 am

    I recently purchased a mahogany dining table from an antique dealer, which I am told is 1960c, from England. I have only tried cleaning the table with lemon oil. The top is dull and apparently has a waxy build-up on it. Upon close inspection, the table top appears to have many short, small cracks, running in the direction of the grain. Additionally, there is a small area where the finish is a little cloudy. Lastly, there are numerous small scratches in the finish. Can you tell what the likely finish is? Does this table top exhibit the "alligator" condition? Can the Wood Elixer restore this finish? If not, what do you recommend?
