Crack / peeling of kitchen cabinet surface

Wondering if anyone has managed to repair something like this without having to have the entire door re-finished. I think it's a lacquer finish, but not sure. Any advice for how to patch this?

Looks like the veneer is toast. I'd scrape/cut out the loose veneer and then use a filler to make that area flush with the rest of the panel. Maybe just paint the panel instead of the entire door.
btw - welcome to the forums!

I'm wondering if that's actually not veneer but a thick layer of lacquer. In either case, I think I'll follow that advice and just clean it out, fill it with some bondo wood filler, and touch it up with satin wood paint.

Thanks for the advice and the welcome!

I don't believe lacquer or any other paint would be that thick.
Let us know how it goes.

It was lacquer - layers of it. Ended up taking it to a wood restoration shop and having it recoated.
