My friend just gives me his dinner table. The table is covered with
hardwood veneers. Unfortunately, the seam where two veneers joined is
slightly delaminated. The edge of the two veneers are still glued
together; but the two edges have losed contact with the wood underneat
the veneers. Therefore, the seam is slightly higher than the table
top. The affected areas are very small: 2 seams that are 5 inches long
each. Strangely, only the middle area of the seam has this problem,
the two ends of each seam are OK.
My questions are:
- What caused this problem? Did this have something to do with
placing hot pots in the middle of the table?
- Will this problem extend to the full length of the seam?
- What should I do to fix this? I know I should not sand the seam
down because the veneer is likely to be very thin.
- Should I splice open the seam and use a syringe to inject some glue
under the seam? What type of glue is appropriate? I guess I need some
fast curing glue, right? I will not be able to clean the glueing
surface before applying glue on it. Will the glue hold?
Thanks in advance for any help.
