Johnson’s paste wax is fine, but its not colored. Over darker furniture, I always use colored paste wax…I bought a can of it about 10 years ago, and there’s still plenty left. So unfortunately (or fortunately) you only need a tiny bit of wax but you need to buy a whole tin. Here’s a link to what I use. Liberon sells a wax polish in 150 ml tins (about 5 OZ) and I think they have a brown. Detailing Liquid is a lot cheaper, and available everywhere.

Regardless, have fun with your finishing touches. You can move your piece from the very nice category, to something that really zings, and people love to run their hands along a nicely finished, rubbed out and waxed table top.
