My sister has a small desk that she’s asking me to help with. One of her kids apparently scratched the surface with scissors or something. They are some fairly deep gouges…along the order of 1/16”. She’s not concerned as much about resurfaced color not matching the legs or a high gloss finish, she’d just like the scratches leveled out so the kids can still use it for writing, coloring and such.
I thought about taking my ROS to it with 80 or 120 and getting the surface prepped. Then fill in the gouges with wood filler. Then perhaps a dark stain to try and hide the filler after it cures. And then some Danish oil and paste wax.
My questions are:
1) does wood filler stain OK or do I need to buy a color to match the stain?
Thanks in advance.
