    Hi everyone

    Got a old flatpack wardrobe. A couple of the screw hole surrounds in the wood panelling have been enlarged as pic shows and so the screw dowels not secure. Is there a filler or putty of some sort I can put in? Cheers

    Epoxy putty. Seen it sold in the range and diy plus hobby craft under different brands.
    Millyput is the well known one which I buy online.

    Not sure how successful a repair will be as hole for cam stud and additional damage is so close to the edge of board

    Any repair / filler / putty / will rely on bonding to surrounding material for strength

    Worth a try, of course but could you add an additional fixing as well - metal bracket of some sort or plastic furniture block ?

    Agree, use small L brackets or furniture blocks in this case
