Writing Desk

I was tasked with repairing a deep gouge in the edge molding of a mahogany-stain over oak veneer writing desk.  The gouge was a little over an inch long and perhaps 1/16" -  3/8" wide.
 I judged the gouge too large to fill effectively with burn-in lacquer, so I went with a died wood filler and then padded the finish to cover the patch.  I finished with a light buffing and added the artificial distressing over the fix.
It's worth pointing out that the before picture was taken in natural sunlight and the after under fluorescent light.  Hence the differences in overall tone of the pictures.
