Topic tags/keywords: table tabletop wood finish no water ring keller furniture

I have a 10 year old wood dining table that was made by Keller Furniture Company (no longer in business). We love this table because if a water ring appears, it will dry on it’s own without leaving a mark. Unbeknownst to us before too late, water stood under a plant long enough to raise the grain on the table. As always, there is no visible water ring, but the area is rough. I’d like to refinish this table to repair this damage, but don’t know what finish it currently has that allows it to resist water rings in this manner.

Does anyone know what this might be? Tung oil? Poly? Lacquer? Whatever it is, it has served us well!

Howdy Handyman,

Have you posted your question on Lumberjocks? That’s a sister site to this one. One of those guys will probably hit the nail on the head. Best of luck to you!
