I have to apologize, I had previously mentioned that I was thinning with lacquer thinner, but that simply was not the case. I have in fact been using mineral spirits, and the wipe down we see in the picture above is due to mineral spirits as well (Whoops!).

A bit more clarification on the finish that is on there, it is in-fact oil based and cleanup recommendations are with paint thinner or mineral spirits.

ArtMann’s feedback on Spar has me a bit nervous now since this will be an outside table (albeit living under a covered patio so mainly need to avoid moisture over UV).

Perhaps I do pull all the finish and start fresh with some General Finishes.

Photos included of current finish for clarification.
