Just wanted to pass this along for anyone who may not know it. Graphite from pencil lead works fantastic to fill in knotty holes. It works nicely on Cherry or Walnut. You don’t need much to darken the epoxy with it. I used lead shavings from this shop pencil that I made for myself a long time ago. It’s a nice large pencil for quick marking and has a big ole fat 5.6 lead in it, also has a sharpener built into it. Very easy to make some shavings to add to some epoxy, and plug some holes..
Hope you’ll try this. It works grrrrrrrr8! Just don’t get carried away. Use enough to fill the hole because you’ll be sanding the excess off when it dries. Also, I always keep these small tubes of epoxy from Harbor Freight. This is one of many little gems HF has and, they’re handy when u need just a little bit.
I do appologize, I meant to take a picture of a few knot holes I filled in on a few cherry boards, but, I forgot. Maybe I’ll take one and add it tomorrow, if I can remember. (it’s hell bein 60).... excuse the explitive.
