staining a veneer table
I am not sure if this is the right forum... but thought I'd give it a try. I am considering trying to stain a veneer table and hope that you might have some advice for me.
We have the table below in a light oak finish. We are moving and a draker table (like the one pictured below) would work much better.
I did some searches and came up with a couple of different approaches:
1) sand, with a fine grit sandpaper, very carefully (so you don't go all the way through the veneer) and then stain
2) forget about sanding and use Minwax grand gel stain right on top of the current veneer/finish
Anyone out there have experience with this? Thanks!
