As a professional remodeler, I frequently have to repair small areas of flooring, cabinets and more. This product is the best I have used for the purpose- you fill the area, and then mix the colors to achieve a match. Furthermore, you can create grain effects, whorls, even fake knots to make your patch blend in perfectly.
My wife supervises my work, and she couldn't even find my last patch until I pointed it out!
A couple of things-
#1: Don't count on sanding the filler. You risk damaging the surrounding area. Instead, fill the area then take a long, very sharp razor blade and shave down the surface to match the area around it before it sets. You can also then cut in gentle grain patterns as you want.
#2: Have on hand several extra brushes. It makes mixing and touching up much easier. Artist-style fine tip brushes work best and allow you to make color marks and adjustments for matching surrounding patterns.
Take your time to get a near perfect color match! I used the color guide to start, but the undertone didn't quite match. I kept adding little bits of yellow and blue until the match looked near perfect. Then I did some tests on the bottom and quickly realized that the color dries much darker. I gradually added white and patch tested until I got a color that blended in completely.
I took a lot of time to fix all the rips and HOLY MOLY IT WAS WORTH IT! The result looks great and I don't think anyone would notice unless I pointed it out.
