Hand around tricks described above under blister repair. When the glue has set for a day, remove the clamp and block. Sand the patch level with the surrounding wood. If it's already at or below level, sand or scrape it to remove all traces of glue that could interfere with the penetration of the stain. Now stain the patch and let dry for a day or two. For final finishing, use varnish. Brush on a thin coat the House (if , ? If MWMI II and let dry. Sand lightly with num- ber 400 paper and brush on another coat. Two coats will be enough unless the patch is low and needs more coats to bring it up to the level of the surrounding area. Let the final coats dry for at least a day. Sand level with number 400 paper used with light oil. Wrap the paper around a block of wood so the area will be sanded flat and true. Finally, after letting the varnish harden for a few weeks, polish it (if required to match the surrounding sheen) with rottenstone and oil (paint store items) or with automotive rubbing compound. iMiilItJ' (ins tffrfJijjjiuWiifc By A.J. HAND A sticky shellac repair technique is line for small repairs, but it can't cupe with larger damage. Gouges and chips over Vz to 3A of an inch across are better repaired by patching with matching veneers. Blisters require still another technique. It's an easy one so let's cover it first. Start by soaking the blister with a warm, damp rag. This will soften l he wood and prevent its cracking. Next, slit the bubble parallel to the fiain with a sharp knife. Use the knife to work white glue under the bubble. Try to overfill with glue at tins point. Next, wrap a few layers of paper towel around a block of wood and press it down firmly over the bubble. This will squeeze out excess j'lue and the toweling will soak it up. Now place a sheet of waxed paper ever the blister, place a block over this and clamp or weight heavily to pi ess the bubble down flat. Let it set lor a day. Remove the block and paper. Wash away excess glue with hot water, working quickly. If you take too long, the hot water may undo the if pair. If the finish over the blister is still intact the job is done. If not, finish with varnish as described later. Patching veneers with veneers is nut easy. First you have to identify the species of wood used in the veneer being patched. Then you must obtain an identical veneer, cut a neat patch, inlay it into the existing ( neer and finish it to match. The best way to get a matching veneer is to buy a kit of samples. Check with your local lumberyard. The veneer you choose will probably require staining to match your existing veneer. Practice staining on veneer scraps until you find a stain or mixture of stains that give a good match. Aim for a good match when the stain is still wet. It may change tone as it dries but will revert to its wet tone when finished. The easiest way to cut a patch is with a veneer punch. This tool will cut away a plug of wood surrounding the area you want to patch and will cut an identical patch from your piece of patching veneer, The result is a perfectly fitting patch that almost disappears. Drawback? The, price is anywhere from S25 to $50 depending on size. If you don't want to spend that much for a punch, use this technique: Cut a patch from your sample veneer. Place it over the damaged area and score around it with a razor-sharp knife. Rescore until you cut through the veneer. Then carefully chip away the damaged area all the way out to the score lines. Scrape the area to receive the patch smooth and tree of glue. Coat the area with glue and cement the patch in place using the paper towel and the block and clamp Dimensional Living isn't just more home for your money.
