Sounds like you need to strip and refinish the table top. The water stains will come off with the finish if they are white. If they are black the stain is in the wood and will have to be bleache out. Use Oxalic acid (wood bleach) to remove the stains then bleach the entire top to get an even color Tain with a matching color and apply ant least 3 coats of lacquer or varnish and rub out to get a smooth slick finish. The burn marks will have to be grain painted to conceal them or the veneer will have to be removed and new veneer patched in. If the rest of the finish on the other pices is in good shape wash it with soap and water rinse and dry, then put on a good coat of paste wax.
