I have a QS red oak dinning room table that had a small dull spot. My wife put some paste wax on it and made the spot more shiny than the rest of the table. So I waxed the whole table. The issue I am having is that you can see schmudges on the table top. I waxed it a couple times using a buffer with the same result. Any suggestions on how I can make the shine consistent across the whole table?

You have too much wax on the surface (which usually happens for me too). I use a buffer and have to bear down a little and build a little warmth, which softens the wax and transfers the extra to the buff pad. Or, strip it with ms and try again. The wax wont last long if you use the table much.

Have your say...
