    How to Remove Dents From Solid Wood & Plywood

    Let me show you this super simple trick to fix dents in wood. The dents pop out with the "magic" of steam and a little patience. It works easier on soft wood, but will still work on hard wood with more applications. It works amazingly well on raw wood, but if your dented wood has a finish on it, you might want to test it to be certain it won't mess up the finish before going hog wild on it.

    This is a common trick used by model makers to restore dented balsa wood. I learned this from a British R/C modeling magazine over 40 years ago. I showed it to my son last summer as we build a workbench to get some light dents out of plywood. I just use a steam iron. He thought it was magic!
