I know this is not a router question, but can someone guide me with some help on how to remove the water stain(?????) on the top of this table. It appears to be a veneered top, and I don't want to sand it. This belongs to the mother of a very good friend of mine and she thinks it's worth many $...I don't agree, but I also don't beleive in smashing dreams.

Thanks for any help.

There a number ways to do this
Here one To remove white rings left by wet glasses on wood furniture, mix equal parts vinegar and olive oil and apply it with a soft cloth while moving with the wood grain. Use another clean, soft cloth to shine it up

I hope Semipro's solution (No Pun Intended) works as intended.

You are likely correct on the $ value of the table. In the last few months I have tried to reclaim wood from some very valuable furniture. The newer the furniture the less wood there actually is. On the Broyhill/Basset triple dresser which was about 30 years old the fronts of the drawers the base molding and most of the frame of the mirror was wood.

The vinegar and olive oil solution is a good place to start. I've also had luck in the past with a Tibet Almond Stick, Old English Scratch Cover (for dark wood), and...get ready for it...mayonnaise. Yep, mayonnaise.
