“I restore antique radios as a hobby. I had a radio that had a missing piece of veneer on the right hand side of the cabinet on the lower front side. The cabinet for this radio has such beautiful wood that I really needed to make the repair and do it correctly.
I purchased the Coconix Floor and Furniture Repair Kit figuring the best I could do was to fill the hole and throw some paint on it and hope for the best.
Well something different actually happened. I filled in the hole (crater) with the Coconix putty and let it dry for about 2 hours. The results were as expected, l the repair stood out like a sore thumb. Disappointed but I was not really worried at this point as I still had the ability to mix the paint and had high hopes that I could at least hide the putty as much as I could.
Now mixing the paint was fun. The paint is supplied is packaged in small easy to handle tubes with a very fine nozzle that allows you to squeeze out just the amount of paint you need instead of making more of the paint mix you would need. After a few tries with various different colors I obtained a match that was so close to the original cabinet color that it was difficult to see where the repair was. The paint was still a little thick for surface painting, I could have used the supplied spatula, but I decided to add a bit is water to the paint which worked out well. This allowed me to provide finite paint job with exacting results and not over painting the repair area. I needed to simulate the wood grain of the cabinet and used the darkest color in the kit and a very fine artist brush to complete the detail work After the paint dried I really could not tell where the repair was made. In the past I just used toner over wood putty for repairs, yep you could still see the repair but at least I attempted to complete the repair. I now I have a better solution that is easy to use and provides exacting results.
The Coconix Floor and Furniture Repair Kit is a simple cost effective and yet a total repair solution for my restoration projects. It is easy to use if you follow the directions. Remember if you use the putty to follow the directions as it will harden rapidly. I found the paint dries a bit darker than needed, so mix the paint a tad lighter than needed. If you make a mistake with the color don’t worry as a bit of water on a clean cloth will remove your miss-judgement in color,. Just adjust the color and move on. This is a great product and they even offer and E-Book on how to use their product.”
