Hi AT - I recently purchased a table off craigslist, and am happy to say I got it at a fraction of the retail price. However, as is sometimes expected the item is in not-new condition. There are some small scratches in the top, and one area where what appears to be the black veneer has been torn off (about 1/4 inch). After some interweb research, it appears that a wax putty stick would be the best way to patch/repair. Has anyone had any experience using this type of product to restore/repair veneer/wood? Thanks!
