1. Philip, You will find a directory of professional refinishers from all 50 states on this site. 2. Holly, There is something strange going on if the stain is under the finish, the finish is intact, and you have no clue as to where it came from or how it invaded the wood. Probably the wood has been adversely affected if this substance is so intrusive as what you describe. This could have taken place when a liquid like a scented candel oil or nail polish remover got into the finish and then dried off. The effect of which would be that colors in the wood and or finish would be reactivated and could have changed the wood color as a result. Some colorants in finishes and stains are more reactive and can seperate from the whole, migrating into the wood and leaving a differant color behind. Short of dumping more of the same all over the top, ha ha, I'm not sure what can be done. You may want to show the table to a pro for some inspection related advice. Or else strip, sand, and refinish.
