Any carpenters here?
Germany aitscheltihwih 
Hello guys, I have some question for those people that are either a carpenter or maybe just do woodwork as hobby. I have this nice woobtable here, which is a nice piece, but its old and got some damage. Most notably some huge stains of ink, that are DEEP in the wood itself and also some waterdamages. Now I realized the main plate is basically a hard wood on which they glued roughly 2-3mm thick sheet of a way nicer wood (looks like walnut). Now my question: can this sheet be removed so i can apply a new one on there? I really dont want to throw this table away, its a pretty nice one. I already sanded it for 3 hours, but the damages are too much and it doesnt seem worth doing more. I applied some oil and protection, but the stains from the waterdamage and especially the ink is still very visible.

Take it to a specialist. Find a very old one, those know every trick.

But its also very expensive. I like to do stuff myself and this doenst sound to complicated, but I dont know how tables like this are made and if I can just remove the small woodsheet.

I think you should take it to and expert, there is a reason why the world needs experties in this too. Also you might save a bit of money, if the wood it ruined, you'd have to buy a new one anyways so the price of the expert would come out the same basically

Not really, the cheapest option that is "safe" would be to buy a new plate just install that one. But that would take alot of work, as I would have to remove some parts from the old plate and attach them to the new one. That would ost only 25-45€. But thanks for the opinion!
