How to repair table top?
We have an oval oak dining room table with one leaf in the center. The veneer (I am sure it is veneer and not solid wood) where the leaf adjoins the rest of the table has raised slightly in places, looking like the veneer is bubbled up, due to, I guess, moisture from spilled fluids from the kids, heat from hot dishes etc.
I would like to correct this, but am fearful of sanding veneer and sanding right through it. I have removed the leaf and tried looking at the sides of the leaf attempting to see if the veneer--IF it is indeed veneer--has separated from the underlying wood but it seems solid.
The overall finish and look of the table is excellent and I hate to get rid of it. Any ideas for getting rid of these raised places?
