I have TWO different repairs to do:
I'm not sure if my vocabulary is correct, but, Both repairs involve veneer-laminate covered chipboard (compressed wood) furniture.

Photos of both are attached below:

1st repair:
Hole in Table. (about 5 or 6mm deep).

2nd repair:
Long and Deep scratch in a Cupboard Door. (about 5 mm deep and 7mm wide)

the veneer cover is very thin.. (like a sticker plastic)

could I repair these with colour
Crayons and then spray finish with a Wood Lacquer ?

if not? what other suggestions do you have ?

Thank you.

Yup, not laminate as such but a plastic membrane.

The table might be easy to repair by replacing the whole top. The long 'gouge' may best be disguised by fitting a covering strip over it.

Either way you're not going to do a very good job of filling the problems no matter how you go at it although there may be someone with in-depth knowledge of such :dunno:

basically what you have is chipboard a paper photo layer and a plastic coating
any repair will show as light will reflect differently on any repair
where about is the top repair on the table ??
is it on the top or else where ??
as kellys eye says replacement may be the best option
or cover with say wooden kitchen worktop or other real timber
