What's wrong with the cabinets? Putty is used for relatively large
holes. Wax pencil is better for small holes, may also work for some
dings. Scratches and other blemishes require other solutions. Putties
and wax pencils come in a variety of wood tones. You may or may not be
able to get an off-the-shelf match.
Thanks Luke. One cabinet has a tiny hole in it, and I patched it with a
yellowish type putty that worked fine.
I was just wondering if there was a close match of some type.
I did find out that if there are scratches, I can simply put white paint
on it, and then wipe it off. The white paint absorbs into the scratch
and looks pretty good.
Since you are suggesting putty, one assumes you have dents, holes or
deep scratches to conceal? Putty sticks are available in many colors,
in most paint depts. that sell wood stain. Have never used them myself.
If the damage is overall wear and tear, and the wood is real (not
printed woodgrain or formica) you might want to consider refinishing.
