    ah I'm back.. anyways been kind of a hectic week- we had the salesman from hell come by appointment this weekend to run some tests on our water.. little did I know he was sweet in the pants- my dars been off lately

    I went to make a call to a friend regarding water softening and whole house/reverse osmosis filters.. that's when he struck surprise buttsecking our veneer.. also the brand new stainless steel sink was scratched after he left

    he was trying to sell a self cleaning water softener and sink filter installed for 6k.. I don't have to tell you what came out of my mouth for that price xD I told him they would need women salesmen to come by and do some things before that would happen..

    anyways is there a way to fix this so it doesn't look like fleece johnson was on top of the sink.. I have no proof so I'm just going to swallow it..

    Depends on how good a finish you want. Darkend down with crayon or actual wax designed for repairs will take the harshness down so you need to look for it - or get a restoration guy in to do it. I expect it wouldn't be worth it for the cost tho. I'd have a go at the crayon myself :)

    Is that Alder wood? Is it a scratch or a dent?



    If it's a dent, try putting water on it. Let it soak in and then take a hot iron and move over the dent. The water should raise the grain slightly, then the hot iron/steam should puff up the rest of the grain. Most of the time it will raise the dent past the existing surface. Then sand and refinish. But a crayon will also work, especially if it's just a scratch

    the crayon didn't work too well.. ended up with some wood putty

    it's veneer so unless I can cut, glue, and sand in a patch- not really noticeable now though and I can always take the putty off later to do it right..

    thanks guys- now let's see what I can do with this can of paint left out in the garage on these door sidings :D

    Let me tell you about the time I fixed some 1920's Parquet flooring by sanding it back and rubbing some hairwax into it.

    You totally couldn't tell I accidentally got some spray-paint on it and got my full deposit back.

    My flatmate also broke the toilet when he flushed the best parts of a binload of fruit peelings down there drunk, because he had seen me flush cereal down it (you know the half eaten incredibly soggy stuff) right before a party...
