Howdy AmyHNYC,

Patching up a glazed wooden table requires lightly sanding section to prepare for "re-glazing".  Without seeing the exact damage to the table. However the methods can still be similar depending on the amount damage.

The usual step is to strip off the old glaze/paint/varathane/stain/etc and do the entire surface. Since your asking about just a section, we will address just a section of the table.

Usually the area that is damaged is cleaned, slightly sanded with a 360 to 600-grit.

Next you try matching the glaze. Sometimes glazes have stain in them some do not. I like to use masking tape to protect areas that I don't want to get scratched.

Happy glazing,
Coach Dave
