vanity issue (x-post from bathrooms)

I had a vanity made by a local carpenter for my very small bathroom a couple of years ago. It was natural maple. Although I liked it a lot, I've noticed signs of water damage from splashes. Is there anything I can do to protect the wood from further damage?
Thank you!

Sand it lightly, then use a waterproofing finish on it.

AND ... be a little better about wiping up spills.

Thank you. What would be a good waterproof finish?
