    Aaaaaaaarrrrrrrgh! I had a handtruck mishap and chipped a 1/4"X1 1/2" piece of veneer on the baffle of my Tumult. Should I use some of the cherry wood filler I picked up at Woodcraft, or actually try to patch this with another piece of cherry veneer?

    I figured I can cut a suitable patch from the leftover veneer I have on hand. I will then try to remove the chipped veneer with a very sharp wood chisel. Then I will contact cement the patch in place?

    Which would work best?

    For all of you considering veneer, when you get too tired, stop. Then you won't have to waste time fixing stupid, preventable mistakes.

    As always, TIA.

  3. DO NOT USE FILLER!!! it NEVER looks right...it only seems to look OK on very small repairs. I would do as you said. clean out the mistake and re-glue in a carefully fitted replacement with yellow glue.

    carefull veneer selection/cutting/gluing/sanding and you can have a repair never look like it is a repair! [​IMG]

    Do you have enough veneer left over to just go over the whole front?

    If not, maybe a full length strip so that the seam will be with the grain?
