Need to repair small holes (dents) in fine oak...:

... some of these 'spots' are about the size of 2 grains of rice... but noticible. Is there a 'putty' type product that I can 'grease' in that repairs the fine oak paneling in my beaver?

thanks in advance!!!

Go to a furniture company they have ,colored repair sticks that look like crayons.They will fill the holes that you are talking about. Just tell them if they help you next time ,you will give them your buiness. Or offer to buy one from them.

Any Home Depot or the like will have these colored "crayons" for repairing nicks or small holes in wood. Just pick out a color similar to your stain. Rub the crayon vigorously across the imperfection. Then take a paper towel and buff across the crayon marks to remove any excess crayon and put a sheen on the repair. No need for a professional. Larger things can be filled with color putty, again available at HD and mixable to acceive a good color match.

If the marks are dents and not gouges you can sometimes steam them out - but only if it's real wood. Use a damp cloth and the tip of an iron on the steam setting. The steam will cause the wood fibers that have been compressed to expand back to their original shape.

The steam will sometimes damage the finish, so you might want to try it in a spot you can't see first. At any rate, don't leave the hot iron on the spot too long.
