    Here is how to get rid of the bubbles. To clamp a table you're going to want two long pieces of say 1x3 boards the width of the table or a couple inches longer. Then use your clamps on the edges of the table rim across to other side. or if you have some lifting weights, you can use a few of those. Don't forget your waxed paper over the glue bubbles.

    Give it days to dry, and then I would give the table a new poly coat to prevent any moisture from getting in there. Be sure to scuff up the top, I use 0000 steel wool to take off the shine, use a tack cloth, and then top coat with your choice of poly.

    The wood on the table is Veneered ,try piercing a few tiny holes with a needle in the bubble

    . Then with a hot iron NO steam on. And an old tea towel, place the iron on the bubble Not too long! see what it does and work from there on.

    Another way is to pierce holes with a needle into the bubble and then use hairdryer on Hi to heatup the area then take a brick wrapped in a towel and put on top of the bubble wait about it 10 minutes and then pick the brick up it should be gone.

    This happened to me once. You do have to poke small holes in the bubble to release the air. I did the hot iron trick, but the hairdryer and brick or anything heavy should work as well.

    Fist of all, you must know that those bubbles appear when th yhin layer of wood is partially unglued. So you have to put glue again ... You can use wood glue with syringue : just fill the bubble with white glue by picking the needle in the centre of the bubble. then press a piece of fabric over it until the bubble flatten to absorb excedent glue. Then place a cooking paper and use a flat piece of wood and clamps to flatten the bubble completly and let the glue dry. Then remove clamps, wood and coocking foil and use the thiner abrasive you have to remove any rest of glue. You can then use a bit of varnish on a cotton fabric to finish the job. I hope it wil help you. Let me know ...

    How do I take off the bubble from the lock screen

    Hi there, poke a few small holes in the bubble and use a syringe to "inject" small amounts of wood glue into the bubble. Place a towel over the bubble and iron it flat for a few minutes. Place something heavy on the towel and leave for a few hours.
