VG article on wood finishing. "Cratering" was the word my brain couldn't produce.  FWIW, that doesn't work in an AB shop to ad silicone-unless I missed something?
Another aspect of refinishing a table top is gravity-it works in your favor! as the finish flows more easily but of course everything shows good & bad.

Many (most?) modern finishes on hard use items today are catalyzed lacquer/conversion varnish. Most solvents don't touch the stuff. The only thing I found truly effective in removing it is methylene chloride which can no longer be purchased at the retail level and is tightly controlled.
