Ok...so I got this display table from Border's as they were going out of business (love it, since I am a bookworm and gave up a good majority of my life to this store).
I use it as a desk in my office, but I'm moving into a studio space and the trim around the edges makes it JUUUUUST too big to fit into the nook provided. So, I'm trying to figure out how to take the trim off and possibly store it for reattachment later.
There are four trimmed sides, braced against some fiber board underneath. The entire desk (minus the fiber board braces) are solid oak, I believe. The sides seem to be stapled into the top surface of the desk and not the fiber board. They have been covered over with wood spackle (dunno if that's what it's actually called).
So any suggestions on how to get those suckers out of there? I've provided pictures.
