Teak table trouble?

Posted by Barri Brown on January 8th, 2003 06:26 PM

I've read through posts re teak tables and still have questions regarding a piece I would like to refinish. I have a heavy folding table that I thought was teak, but on close examination I find that it seems to have a laminate of some sort over what I fear is plywood underneath.

It has water stains and the corners are chewed up in places, but it is a pretty deco-type piece and I would like to make it usable if possible.

My questions are:

1. If it's laminated is it possible to refinish?
2. I can't seem to tell if it has lacquer or not (whether or not it's laminated). Can someone tell? (see picture link below)
3. Is this table worth the bother or should I just throw a tablecloth over it?

I have pictures at the following link:

Thanks so much for your help!

(we're making the big move from rental to homeownership, and we're pretty much idiots.)
