How do I deep clean a wood table?


I recently purchased an antique wood table that was clearly around for a long time. Every time I wipe the table down it's sticky. It has a stubborn layer of 'age' that is really grossing me out.

I need all of your tips, tricks and any tried and true methods to remove the grime that comes with age. :)
