I am trying to fill some gouges in a reclaimed cypress table I am making (not all just some of the deep ones), I have tried Min-wax wood filler and Elmer's wood filler, on a scrap piece and when I put the stain on It really shows exactly where the filler Is. Does anyone know what fillers or what can i use that will accept stain and help hide the repair?
Please help. Thanks Rick
Hi Rick, You can try using a mixture of saw dust from the wood you are using and a little bit of glue, also you could get a filler that is a close match to the stain you are using and fill in the spots after you stain the wood
What is blade fake? and How do I achieve this? Thanks for the reply
Be sure & blade fake grain your woodfilled spots to overcome the smooth & tight fled surface, this helps accept stain or dyes, depending on which technique you're using.
