Maple Table

I need to put a finish on a maple table top. I sanded the top down to 400 grit and then applied a oil finish that was recommended for cutting boards. After I applied the oil the top looked and felt great, but once I wiped the table down after my first meal the top felt rough and the color of the table became lighter. So I guess that the choice of oil wasn't good and now I need a better finish to apply to the top. Any help is appreciated.

The most durable finish I know of is called Rockhard varnish. It was originally designed as a finish for bar tops and is extremely durable. It's available from

PS - they offer a free catalog at their web site - it's yours for the asking.
