Remove Dents from Wood with an Iron
Trev25 at Instructables.com has a great step-by-step guide for getting dents out of wood using an iron. Judging from the 100+ comments the life hack is a hit and really works! You can find a summary below.
Be sure to check out the original post to read all the tips and feedback from the Instructables community.
What you’ll need: An iron, some water and a shop towel
(an old t-shirt or rag also works!)
Put a dab of water on the affected area,
just enough to cover the dent.
Now cover the affected area with your towel/rag.
Set your iron to the highest/hottest setting and make small movements (back and forth and in circles) until towel is dry.
The wood should absorb the water and expand back
to its original position. Repeat process as needed.
For unfinished pieces you can lightly
sandpaper the area to smooth things out.
