veneer bumps, How can i decrease the bumbs in a veneer table caused by too long screws, I have fixed the screw problem but the bumbs need to go away.
First, buy well made furniture made by professionals. Do not patronize an industry that preys on an uneducated public to get them to buy cheap crap because they think that is all there is.
Second, return the table to whomever you bought it from, at their expense and demand your money back, with interest, and do so loudly.
If that doesn't work, call a professional furniture repair service and be willing to pay a living wage for an intelligent, experienced craftsperson to come to your place and perform the work necessary.
Yes, it will cost more than the table.
This is why we refer to it as 'curb furniture'. That is always where it ends up after just a short time.
What if Randy is the guy that built the tables?
The responder has an appropriate moniker !
To the point, it ain't easy and sometimes it's impossible. If its a small 'rise' and did not cut thru the veneer (assuming it's veneer), you can either use a clamp & block or a block and mallet and get it to flatten (carefully), if it goes down, use a syringe to shoot some glue via the screw hole to lock the core fibers. Then put the correct size screw in. Type of wood and sheen of finish will affect how easy or hard this will be or if it even works. If it helps but you can still see it, then you probably need to strip and refinish it.
FYI, a pic helps people reply to the issue and eliminates guessing.
