Over the years I’ve learned some techniques to repair areas where wood is missing… without wood filler. Finding the right wood to match is the first step, but then what? I walk through three examples of how to patch wood in this video to share some woodworking knowledge. I hope you find this useful. Scott

That was a great and informative video.
I would not have done it like that, abd you showed me better ways!

Thanks for your videos. This was just what I needed for the Morris chair that I am currently reupholstering. I thought it was going to be just a case of retying a few springs, adding some new padding, and the new upholstery. I found that many of the doweled areas were broken out and just had some extra hardware and nails added to hold it all together. If it weren’t a sentimental family piece from about 1900, it would have ended up in the trash.

Thanks for sharing your “tricks of the trade.” They will be very helpful.
