In Response To: bubble in veneer or stain (Paul)

Sometimes a clothes iron set on low heat with a cotton cloth for protection, will stick the glue below the veneer, back together. The stain is not the problem, it is into the wood and below the finish, and would result in a chipped looking hole on top of the wood. The veneer bubble is a problem that is the result of a hot or wet condition that is likely from use. Try to identify what is the cause so you can avoid this in the future and decipher the resulting damage. The problem is, that if the looseness is from water or age you may need to inject Liquid Hide Glue into the void by way of a tiny razor cut. Follow this with a rolling pin or the like, to press the excess glue out, and wipe it away with a damp cloth. Next a piece of waxed paper and some heave object. Peek after an hour to see if all is well and to wipe off any more glue that is present. Replace the waxed paper and the weight, add more if needed, that 8 hours later you should have a flat surface again. Remove any dried glue with white vinegar and wax and buff the finish for a satin luster.
