I have a maple dining table that I made around 1990. Originally it was finished with a sprayed pre-cat lacquer, but has since been re-done with V33 water-based kitchen and bathroom varnish, bought here in France. This has worn badly and there are now several bare patches. Any suggestions for a: stripping the old finish and b: a durable replacement?

Thanks, Percy. I was thinking of using Danish oil as it is light coloured and easily repairable. I'm not familiar with Osmo - is it a similar thing?

Osmo is similar in that it is an oil finish and it is applied in the same way. If you are happy with danish oil and the slight amber hue it will give your maple then I would go with that as it is a fraction of the price and a really great product.
