In Response To: water marks (Drew)

I would proceed very cautiously with a clear (Watco) danish oil stain and 800 grit wet/dry sand paper. Apply a little oil and begin lightly to massage the oil into the damageed area. Always work with the grain. After a few minutes you should notice an improvement in removing the ring. If the ring should become much darker, stop, clean off the oil, and clean the area with naptha. Allow the area to dry for 8 hours and see what has transpired, if the damage is reduced then proceed. If the ring is darker, then you may need to use some alcohol on a Q tip to disolve what has soaked into the wood. I don't think this will result however. You should be able to hide the damage with the clear danish oil and when dry apply a fresh coat of Bri or semilar wax to the entire top. If the ring appears lighter when dry, a little oil stain of matching color can be added, wipe off the excess, and after a day then wax the entire surface, buff to a low sheen with a soft cotton cloth.
