    I want to paint some old chairs, but see there are a few chips etc on them.

    Which filler would be best to repair thrse please?

    A friend suggested car body filler as it"s a 2 part product and sets super though and fast too.

    I actually have some of that, but surely there is a similar type of product dedigned for wood.

    Thanks

    Yes, body filler is easy to finish and still hard enough to withstand knocks. You can buy it as a two-part pack in smallish tubes.
     
  5. Give it a try out on some scrap wood,sometimes it goes off once opened.

    Have been repairing damaged door frames with this 2 part filler,its great stuff but use it fast and get a smooth finish first time,it saves on sanding later.

    You could try superglue in the hole then sprinkle baking soda on.

    Google them, its a good method apparently.
