Repairing chips on a table


Apologies if this is in the wrong section, I wasn't sure where it would fit.

Anyways, I have recently purchased a very nice wooden coffee table, however what I didn't notice was that there are a few very small chips around the edge of the table.

They are literally tiny, not really noticeable unless you look up close.

Yet they are really bothering me.

Any ideas on how I could repair them, or at the very least, make them as close to invisible as possible?

Thanks everyone

Thanks for this advice it will be beneficial for us. Some people actually want wood furniture with scratches, dents and other damage. They look for beautiful pieces of wood furniture in need of repair in order to save money. Pieces of wood furniture with dents, scratches, and other damage cost far less than brand new undamaged pieces. Repairing a corner chip on a wood table is similar to repairing an edge chip, but because the chip is on a corner it will require support beneath the repair until the filler begins to solidify.

Amy, take a picture of the issues and post them. The fix will be determined by the type of damage.

Agreed- sometimes a rag with stain on it will hide scratches. I've even used a black sharpie to hide a chip in a black laminate top.

Thanks for the help so far, as soon as I can get access to a decent camera (I've only got my phone one right now) I'll get a photo up.
