Good idea to carry a test piece through the process to answer these kind of questions on a test piece and not the table.

Have you rubbed out a finish before? I suspect not from the details of your question. If you have not and your aren't willing to learn by spending some time on test pieces I suggest dulling the finish by rubbing the top with a quality 4/0 wool, w or w/o wax of some color. This process is nearly risk-free unless you use wax.

A problem with rubbing out a porous wood is rubbings sticking in any pores that remain unfilled. Porous woods are filled with filler before rubbing out.
