I bought a wood farm table a few years ago and was quite expensive. I believed was solid wood but now I decide I want to redo it and sand and stain top.After sanding some I notice it becomes a solid brown color underneath like it is fake wood on top. Idk if its veneer or what it is. This part I sanded was an extra leaf thank god. Now I dont know weather to try and lightly sand the table or use a stripper. Any suggestions?

Sounds like you sanded through the veneer. If so, sorry to say but it's ruined. The entire table would need new veneer of you want it to match. Chemical stripping of the old finish followed by light hand sanding with very fine grit is all you can do with veneer. Doubtful you can change the color of the stain.

Another possibility is that if you did not sand very deep the top finish could have been enhanced with some type of proprietary finish.'
Stains can be applied in a factory that are nearly impossible to duplicate.
