Welcome Bebe. Furniture repair is the art of illusion. The materials used do not matter, only the finished result. As long as the repair is strong and invisible the client will be happy. I can not say enough good things about Mohawk Professional Refinishing Products. I worked at a water bed store many years ago and was always doing touch ups to the many nicks and scrapes that occur in a retail store. The store manager noticed this and got me a Mohawk kit; this proved to be a great investment for the firm. I was able to make repairs the store owner could not spot after 20 years in the business with only a little practice. Repeat after me: "Lacquer is our friend!"
