    What if there is lacquer on top of the wood? Would it still work or turn the lacquer a different color?

      Unless the lacquer is made of leprechaun blood, it’s just as damaged as the wood underneath it. Nothing’s perfect. You’re going to have to relacquer.

        This works,… but works best on softer wood. The harder it is, the harder it will be to dent and to undent…

    Brilliant! Do you know what the heat setting is on the iron, and approximately how long you need to hold down the iron before you check the wood? Thanks!

    putting semen on the board before ironing works best. So work one out and carefully place you’re load in the dent and iron at setting 4.

    If you can’t add a comment of actual substance to the conversation, just shut up.

    Yes, you are part of what’s wrong with the world. Sicko.
