If you are painting it, you could try dry wall compound. It sticks well and doesn’t shrink.

I agree with lew. I went to a box store today to buy wood putty and primer. The guy at the paint booth is real friendly and said if I’m going to use paint and I have some speckle at home, then use it instead. I happened to have a small container of spackle but had to stir it up real good due to letting it sit for a year. It dries in no time (for shallow dents and such). I had a little bit of tear out along the edge of plywood where a large drill hole got to close. Worked there too. Sands easy. Works like a charm
