TGIF: Repairing damaged furniture

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

A decent article on some furniture repair.   This seems to work best on heavily colored finishes.


Is it too obvious that Minwax is a sponsor?   There are much better touch up products -- Mohawk, Guardsman, etc.  Lacquer based.

I've done a few of these.  I had a dog chew up a big section of base molding on a buffet cabinet once.  It took several layers and a lot of carving and shaping to get it all back to looking good.   When I showed it to the customer for approval, he said, "Wow, you sure got the color right."   OK, 45 minutes of Bondo and shaping and a couple of minutes of spraying on a toner.   Whatever, I'll take it.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
