Scoop out some wood filler onto a small, metal putty knife.
Push the wood filler into the table hole to fill it.
Smooth the filler surface, using the flat of the putty knife. Allow the wood filler to dry according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Sand the surface of the wood filler to get a smooth finish using 100-grit sandpaper. Work with the wood's grain. Apply paint or stain as planned.
