    I’m going to try this on my dinner table where my cousin wrote (read carved) a paragraph into 2 different spots. Sadly, she’s not a child so I couldn’t charge her parents for the damage & as a college student, there was no way she could replace my table. It’s too big and heavy to move to sand & repaint, so hopefully this works
