Wax finish helps protect dining tables and other surfaces from damage. You can wipe off spills and stains more easily and it protects them from chips and scratches. You can apply your own wax finish by going into any hardware/paint store and asking the clerk for brand recommendations.

First make sure your sealed wood table clean and remove any old wax build up with commercial wax remover. After your table is dried, use a clean dry cloth and a circular motion to apply a thin layer of furniture wax. Allow to dry and then buff. Repeat as necessary.

Well when you wax your table then it looks more expensive and it stays in better conditions for a long time. It's a great thing to wax your dining table.

Since your dining room table will be used for eating and you will probably put hot dishes on it. I would put a coat of polyurethene on it instead of wax finishing.

You need to learn about French polishing - how to make a "rubber" to apply the polish, and "spirit it off." The antique restorers use "button polish" a lot.
