Here's How To Get Rid Of A Dent In Your Wood Furniture...With Just WATER

When trying to save a penny on craft supplies, it can be helpful to grab slightly damaged objects like this piece of dented wood. But you don't have to hammer over it or cover it up with other panels to keep your project looking pristine.

Instead, just pretend it's a super-starchy shirt and iron it out. (Seriously, grab your iron.) Trev25 from Instructables brought a gently damaged piece of wood to a TechShop...and with some ironing magic, now it looks good as new!

You'll also need some water and a paper towel or rag.

Start with a small amount of water in the dented area.

Then cover that with the cloth...

And smooth over it with your iron on the highest setting.

Continue until the towel is totally dry and repeat as necessary for the fibers to absorb as much of the water and expand as they need.

Then sand it down and start crafting!

How easy is that? Now you can save a buck without sacrificing the quality of your projects. Perfect!
