    There are a few 2 part epoxy puttys knocking about that should do the job just like Pkamargo has listed. Just clean the chips up making sure you the rough the edges so the putty gets a good grip. It can the be filed and sanded to shape once it has set. I use the black for repairing black slate clock cases and it does set quite hard but is still easily sanded. Dont be tempted to shape it while the putty is setting, it goes through a stage where you can carve it easily but this could weaken the join, let it set hard before sanding to shape.
    Hope this helps.
