Girlfriend is asking about refinishing her oak table. She gave it a polyurathane coat when she first got it but that it has taken a pretty good beating.

My first thoughts was to get a buffing machine and see if we can't just clean it up that way.

If that's not a good idea, or doesn't work... Any other suggestions? I'd really hate to sand it down and try to refinish from scratch but I've really no idea what to do in this case.

Poly is a pain to repair. It'd probably be easier to strip it down and start over. If you're not wanting to spray, the oil-based wiping poly's work well. I used to topcoat cabinets with Deft and Varathane before switching to the water-based from Target Coatings which we spray.
