    It all depends on how much ink was spilled and how deeply it has penetrated the wood. You can try sanding to see how deep the color is. You may have to start over and refinish the table in a darker stain to camouflage the ink, or paint it darker than the ink.

    Before refinishing, try a paste of baking soda and just enough water to moisten it. Rub it in with your fingers and then wipe clean. The other method I've heard about, but, not used is to use alcohol. Try it in a tiny spot first, since it may damage the finish. I've used Goof off to remove most paint messes, but, it might also damage the finish. Good luck!

    You can rub it off with a fine steel wool and lemon oil. Scrub until it disappears.
