I built this trestle table out of cherry ~20 years ago and used Hydrocote lacquer to finish it. The table top has held up quite well except for this one spot where it is peeling…not sure how to fix this? Any thoughts?

Can’t you disolve laquer with laquer thinner and there by repair this spot by blending more laquer into the spot.

Hydrocote is water-borne. I used some about the same timeframe, it was new at the time.

Not worth trying to fix. Do it right. Strip and refinish.

Stripping is probably the best way to repair the top…any suggestions on what to use for stripping on a water based product…a chemical stripper followed by sanding, etc…?
Thanks for any input!

Citrustrip. Don’t sand.
