Can you stain engineered (and veneered) wood?
Hey Hometalkers! I'd really like to give my son's train table a makeover by painting the drawers and staining the rest, but I'm not sure it's possible. The table is made of engineered wood with a "birch" veneer (I have this in quotations, because I'm not sure if the veneer is even wood.) If I lightly sand it, will it accept stain? Has anyone tried to do this before?
