I have got a Solid Oak Dining Table that has a couple of cracks down it , in a couple of places as per pictures , question how and if , can I repair/hide these cracks , I was thinking of cleaning out the cracks ( how) I dont want to make them bigger than they are ( about 1mm ) and try to fill them with some wood filler that I remember awile back it came in a tube ! .
any help on this problem will be highly appreciated , and am also having to sand (400grit !) it all back to the base , because some of the Laquer as worn away .
