If you ever get a dent in a piece of wood furniture, you can actually use steam to pull out the dent and make it flush with the surrounding wood. Here’s how it’s done:
First, saturate the dent with water, and let it soak in for a minute (Fig. 1). Next, moisten a rag, and lay it flat over the dent. Set an iron on its highest setting, and press it onto the rag for just a few seconds (Fig. 2). This creates steam, which expands the wood fibers to remove the dent.
|Use an eye dropper to saturate the dent with water.||Apply an iron to a damp cloth to steam out the dent.|
To finish up, sand lightly where the dent used to be, and apply a coat of finish.
Have a nice weekend,
