    Ive used a polishing compound that comes in a stick that looks a lot like a big crayola crayon. Its is made of super fine polishing grit mixed with wax. You apply it to a polishing buffer wheel made of cloth. The brand name is MIBRO, just do a search for it on yahoo to find out about it. I bought the polishing stick and buffer wheel at Tractor Supply.

    Try using steel wool first before you strip it down. It may or may not do anything, it may or may not completely strip the finish.

    The best way is to sand the entire table down. Then you have to seal the wood, stain it and varnish it. Inbetween coats, you have to sand it to get the bubbles and such out. The last coat should be polished

    try rubbing mayo onto spots in a circular motion with clean dry soft cloth. leave sit hour or so.. can try again if it didn't work.

    hope this helps

    most of the time this will require you to strip the finish off and start from scratch.

    Sorry but there is no easier answer.
