Ouch.

Probably easiest and most effective to make a new wooden panel, though matching the veneers won't be easy. You could try to find a scrap unit and make one good case out of the two.

I'd be tempted to use two-pack wood filler to make the corner, flatten off then key the whole area and attach new veneer.

Many thanks for the advices-yes theres some great advices there,just to ask if I was to attempt a full top panel replacement im assuming its going to need some good woodworking tooling to cut the board via a template scored from the original to allow for the cassette deck lid etc opening.

Exactly how you would make it will depend on your skills and the facilities available. The original is probably veneered plywood. It should be possible to cut the openings with an ordinary coping saw with care, though there are fancier tools available.

Many Thanks Paul yes im okay with wood works but have no workshop facility for it. But I have a colleague that may be able to help with the more demanding tooling as it will need to be as square as possible etc with the cuts. Thanks for the Plywood advice asw ell, may well be taking that direction and complete with the sides to match.

Looks more like veneered chip board to me.

Yes, you're right. Plywood could be used as a replacement of course.

I agree with Glyn, repair the damage and then apply new veneer, easier than making a new panel.
