The Dog Chewed the Wooden Furniture Leg - Despair and Repair!

2 Hours

I'm sure I'm not the only homeowner who has had their adorable (sometimes NOT so adorable) furry best friend chew on the furniture. Luckily our little guy is not the culprit of this dastardly deed but somebody's pet made a mess of these legs! I found them orphaned from the chair they were on and happened to be looking for a set of legs for a trunk I was repurposing into a coffee table. I rebuilt and resculpted these legs with wood epoxy putty and my dremel. Wood epoxy putty is not the same as standard wood filler. It is harder than wood and can be used for extensive repairs. Here are the before and afters. Also, here is the link to the finished trunk/coffee table: If you have any questions, let me know!

    I have used Plastic Wood very successfully for dog chewed windowsills. He took of the corners and I was able to shape, sand and paint. You would never know that they were "missing" prior to my fix.
