Dent in wood parcel - help needed

I have ordered a parcel of oak wood and unfortunately it got damaged while I was handling it. What is the best way of getting rid of a dent in the wood?

Depending on how deep the dent is, you can either sand it out or get a wet cloth, place over the dent and then place a hot iron on top. This should swell the timber and bring out the dent.

Wet rag and a iron will get dent out easily

I personally put water on the timber then use a piece of white paper

Use something like plasticine and form a dam around damage, leave water to soak with just a drop of washing up liquid to break surface tension of water, leave to soak, due to close grain of hardwood could take a while to react .
