Having the same problem

MY wife spilled some nail polish remover (acetone) on our new dining room table. It looks like it only damaged the finish and not the underlying stain. It is a dark stained mahogany wood. I am going to try to use 00000 steel wool with wax and then follow up with a reapplication of finish. I wish I knew a test to tell what type of finish is on the table now...that would be real helpful. I have a friend at a cabinet shop and maybe he knows finishes.

In the same sinking boat

Last resort I got a list of professional refinishers from google. The table cost 2K and I want to get it back looking good.

Most commercially applied topcoats are lacquer. Do not try to apply any topcoat on wax, it won't stick.
