I just purchased a large DR table and chairs from CL and loved them but when their friend delivered it, there is a gouged place in the table top!

Of course, no one knows how it got there so can not really blame anyone.

It looks like it might have been done while bringing it through a door, but does anyone have any idea what I might do about it? Would a wood filler help?

The best way to fix this is a "burn in" repair. To do these, you melt a solid resin, then smooth out, match level, color, grain, texture, and sheen. It's not really a DIY level fix. I've done thousands of them and rarely a day goes by that I don't do a few of these. Contact a local furniture repair person, or get a referral from a good furniture store, who should have someone that does this for them.

If the gouge is not too deep, there may be other approaches, but wood putty is not one of them.

phoggie go to google and look for a furniture repair service in your area. Most of these companies will travel 60 miles or more. Most repairs like this will run from $125 to $175 depending on the travel time. A good service will make this look like new and will be worth the money
