Imperfections in wood surfaces on wall trim, doors, furniture, or other objects can be unsightly, but fortunately, correcting them doesn't have to involve a major project or a lot of money. Using a quality wood filler is the answer to correcting minor holes, dents, and chips that detract from the appearance of natural wood. These fillers are made with wood or wood-like fibers and binding agents and have a soft, paste-like formula that makes them easy to spread and smooth into damaged wood. Once dried, filled areas can be sanded and painted, creating a fresh, revitalized look. Before you buy, think about the color of your wood, because fillers come in different shades. You'll also need to consider the size of your project, as wood fillers are available in tubes for small repair tasks, and tubs for larger areas. Powdered formulas that require mixing with water are also available but are intended for builders or major home-improvement jobs.
