How do I fix a broken piece of wood from a hollow door?
Rather than replacing my damaged hollow doors, I would like to fix them and paint them. Any suggestions on how to repair holes that are fairly big?
On the pine wood it looks like you could just sand smooth and coat with orange shellac. Can't really tell on cabinets. Are they partical board with wood film over it? You could try Bondo as filler and paint to look like wood.
GET some sculpting clay & fill in the gaps. Wipe them smooth using your wet fingers. Allow it to dry overnight, then paint it the same color as the wood. It's inexpensive & you control the build-up & you won't havta worry about sanding or re-staining or any of those carpentry tricks. It's easy & fun.
Fill with wood putty. There's products for paint, and stain.
I'm not sure what material the cabinets are? all of the above suggestions seem easy and doable. Thank you all for your suggestions!
Ours ate the window sills in 2 rooms and the legs on my antique buffet. My husband used wood putty. It did take several times to fill, sand, fill, sand before it looked right.
Use wood putty to fill in and shape the chewed up areas. Lightly sand then paint or stain.
I used Elmer's wood putty on my door frame, I had to fill it a little at a time, so that it would harden good. Came out perfect. I think you can sand down the scratched part with a 220 grit or better then re-stain
Use the wood putty but mix in the color of your stain before applying it to the damaged areas. This way it will blend in better, sand and then cover with a varnish or varathane to seal it.
