Don't ask me how it happened, but I lined a walnut bowl with saran to
protect it from something, and the saran 'melted' onto the bowl. What
can I use to remove it?
I am no good at sanding etc, so that would have to go to a pro if
that's the only solution.
Good luck with that -- the OP probably means Saran Wrap, or its generic
is made from polyethylene. Mechanical removal is probably the only option. I
think I'd use a
card scraper with a convex edge.
Not many details here-
Is it possible that heat or moisture caused the wrap to meld into
If so, you'd have to use the appropriate solvent to dissolve some finish
and get the wrap out, then apply a new coat of finish.
Difficulty depends on what finish was used.

Polyethylene doesn't really dissolve in anything at room temperature, but you
could paint the bowl with mineral oil (edible kind, like for a laxative) and
hold it under a heat lamp, that will take polyethylene off. Shouldn't hurt
the wood. I hope.
