That would be the worst thing if they are antiques as I recall... contact your local antique dealer they use a special wax to do this... I don't remember what it's called off hand?

I am trying to refinish an antique solid oak table. As I was sanding the top, and got through to the natural wood, sticky spots started appearing. The more I sanded, the worse it got, it appears to be tree sap. Is this possible? If so is there anything I can do to fix it without ruining the wood. I would like to stain this piece.
