1- When you use the verb without an object, it takes the first meaning.
"Se ha roto el piso de la sala. Voy a entablarlo y mañana lo repararé"

"¿Quieres entablar ahora mismo?", (it may sound a little odd, if the context is not the correct one)
I'm sorry, I forgot "Entablar una amistad"
"Se conocieron hace un par de años, y entablaron una gran amistad. Desde entonces, son inseparables"
I'd like to make one thing clear: entablar is a transitive verb. It requires a direct object. That's how we distinguish first meaning and second meaning.

1- If possible, write it with a direct object. It helps a lot.
"Voy a entablar el techo"
"Voy a entablar un negocio"
The more information you say, the clearer the sentence will be.
