Joe Somali called me because he purchased a property with bedroom with no doors, and the door that he did have in the bathroom had a hole in it. Joe had hired a carpenter to put in the missing door. The door was not badly damaged, it was pushed in a bit from the towel bar on the other side of the bathroom wall. He wanted a quick fix to repair the door.

Step 1: Use wood putty to cover the hole, and waited for it to dry.
Step 2: Above fig.1 shows the sanded door was smooth with using a hand sander.
Step 3:
The last step was to primed the door patch with primer paint, the same color as the door. The job save Joe one door he had to replace.
