So I bought great but slightly damaged speakers and I would like to restore them, I understand they won't look like new but I would like to try my best.

The damage: enter image description here

The wood texture detail: enter image description here

I was thinking of using some wood filler/wax, do you have any experience you could share? Also I was thinking of creating an negative imprint to recreate the texture, what material could I us? Maybe silicon? Some form of dental acrylic?

Any advice is welcome!

I recently replaced the door handle on my front door. There were two holes left from the old handle. I filled them with Plastic Wood, then sanded flush. Then, I took a awl and mimicked the grain pattern. It looks spectacular. After priming and painting, my mother could not even see where the hole was. You can do it!
