Topic tags/keywords: mahogany cherry refurbishing

Was removing one of hundreds of staples from the back of this chair. As the staples were longer that needed it required some prying. This one slipped and knocked a chip out of the back. This is clearly visible and I need to make the repair.

Plan is to use some wood glue, with a little pigment added. Set the chip back in til the glue sets up. Light sanding around the edge of the chip with 400 grit or higher. touch up with dye and finish with dark wax.

If anyone has better idea or correction to this please let me know.

If you use white glue it dries clear.

James,

It looks like it chipped out with nice clean edges. Do a dry fit first, but it should go right back and with a little glue should not be that noticable. The more you sand and fool with the original finish the more it will stand out like a sore thumb. Like Jim said, if you use white glue, it dries clear. Be careful with clamps as not to damage the surface. Good Luck
