#3 Next time don't finish it with that terrible shiny varnish. A wax finish would really bring out the beauty of the wood and in the long run will last longer. When a wax finished table gets dull or even scratched it takes 10 mins to re-wax it but with varnish all you can do is sand , re-stain and start all over again.
