  1. I have a dining room table, in 3 pieces, the ends are from the 1860's the center addition was made around 1940. I am told they are cherry with mahogany stain. they have an oil rubbed finish. on rare occasions it has had wax polish such as pledge or briwax but mostly just lemon oil. It had some dull dry spots and I was advised to use a mix of equal parts linseed oil, turpentine and vinegar to feed it. Now the table is sticky and attempts to rub it up make it dull and it is catching dust and lint in the sticky coating on the surface. the linseed oil mix is not very liquid and has "tracks" left
