Refinishing a Wood Coffee Table

I have an old coffee table. It has lots of nicks and scratches from our kids. What would be the easiest way to refinish it?

Refinishing a small wood table isn't that difficult. They have some great orange smelling stripper on the market now. It cost less than 10 bucks for a bottle the size you would need for the table. If just the top is scratched just refinish the top part. You spread this stuff on, let it set and then scrape it off. Sand, stain if needed and finish with sealer. Not hard at all. Ten bucks and a little elbow grease could get you a really nice piece to keep in the family.

I have a solid oak rectangular shaped coffee table I bought 30 years ago and the problem is it has smoked glass for the top and is now scratched and outdated. I would like to refinish the wood and replace the smoked glass with something else to update it. Any suggestions?

Visit your local glass, and mirror shop with the dimensions you want and a photo of the piece of furniture. They tend to be really good about custom orders ! (02/28/2008)

How about a board covered with a textured or colorful fabric or even carpeting. Or you could attach wooden trays or boxes underneath, fill with rocks, seashells or momentoes then add clear glass on top.
I would paint it, easier than refinishing.
