Use plastic wood, it works great and once it's dry you can sand to smooth.

I've done this, I used wood filler putty--just fill, let dry and sand off any excess until smooth.

How do I fill in a gouge in a laminate countertop? It is that kind of top that looks like butcherblock, but I am going to do a faux finish over it so the repair doesn't have to be "invisible."

Melt a crayon, and use the wax to fill it in. :-) (03/17/2007)

wax would melt from a hot pan or sunlight(wouldn't it?). There is this stuff that we use to fill screw holes in wood, it's called "wood filler". I think there is exterior wood filler that holds up to weathering. If you are going to lacquer it(seal it) it should work well. It depends on what you are using it for I suppose. (03/19/2007)
