hey guys,what wood filler works best for filling nail holes,cracks,and the all too often mistakes.incedently,when someone asks,what i am making in the shop,my reply is far too often '' mistakes mostley''.any advice on this would be much appreciated. thanks
I've used the Famowood that they sell at Lowe's with good success. I pick the color closest to the wood I am using and then mix it with a little of the choosen stain (if it's being stained) and it works well. Although I try to avoid having to use something like that all together...but usually fail
:-D Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile :-D
Honestly Honey, that will cost around $100$150 $200, and I need a few more tools.
Heard from a client..."If I had your tools and experience...I could do it myself"
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
I usually try to keep the holes I create to a real minimum by using pocket screws or biscuits, but when I must use nails, I use the smallest ones possible -- I prefer to use 18 Ga brad nails versus finishing nails -- and keep the heads below the surface. If the wood is going to be painted, I use latex caulk or spackle to fill the holes and keep any off the surface. Otherwise, I use Famowood or Minwax Wood Putty (if I can closely match color). I have also mixed very fine sawdust from the wood I'm using (random orbital sander 220 or 320 grit output) with fast setting epoxy and filled holes.
