Some of you remember I had one that loved to sail even with the usual distrust of water. He would get on the boat and scurry up the mast fast and far as he could go. I built him a little place up there for safety sake. Of course I did not take him out when it was too windy or wicked.

To wax it I would use the wax polish not the spray can stuff you can get it about any where you put it on with a rag let it set a minute then buff it to a shine.

I added several coats of Minwax Wipe on Poly to my table ----it has held up well for many years---

Check for compatibility---Poly will lift a lacquer finish---

Smart cat!!!! Is she your first? Every kitty I ever had knew the difference between places they could and places they could not go...take time & patience, but considering cats usualy live long lives, it's worth it.

It's outstanding that she wants to be with you so much...enjoy it

PS...our cat thinks she's a dog

My parents had a sheet of glass cut to the exact shape of their dining table, and the edges polished by a glass co. Looks good, easy to clean and protects the stained pine top from scratches etc. very well. Once every couple of years it needs to be lifted off to clean the underside of the glass, I think something comes out of the wood/finish & deposits on the glass, eventually causing a slight haze. Other than that, it only needs the maintenance/care typical of any glass top table. It was just standard 4mm window glass.

Thanks for your reply. A glass top really won't work for us...I had one years ago on our kitchen table...for some reason known only top men , my husband will toss something rather heavy on the table and poof...broken glass.

I'm going to use a good poly and beleive that will do it...it is just my husband and me now, kids married, so it should be easy to remind hubby to be careful
