Hey guys

Was just about to start painting my door which i had assumed was solid wood and i find this bubble in it.

I assume this is veneer? I was just going to cut it out with a Stanley knife then fill the hole it leaves but was wondering if anyone could suggest a way to minimise the amount of filler needed to make a neater job of it.

Thanks

Make a cut, squirt in glue and then clamp flat?

I did a small veneer bubble by squirting some PVA in a pin hole and putting a hot iron on. The iron heated the water out of the glue and it bonded. There was a small bump left afterwards which was 'tenting' caused by the wood expanding. In this instance I think I would slit right down the middle with a thin craft knife and try the PVA /hot iron approach. You might have to trim the veneer edges back alomg the slit as you go to eliminate tenting. :thumbright:
