Jody: If you do not have a large area to fill, the wood glue/sanding dust is an excellent way to go. It is cheap, and the color match is as good as it gets. The problem is, that it does not have a large yield, hence you might not have enough sanding dust to cover the entire area, plus the glue dries really fast, made faster by “drying” it out by adding the dust, rendering it hard/impossible to spread. Have to work in small sections if you have enough dust. If the area is large, go to a “real” flooring dealer, (not a big box store or home center) they will have excellent water based grain fillers that the professional flooring installers use that match the particular wood that you are using (red oak filler for red oak wood etc..). It can also be thinned with water to make spreading easier. May have to go over twice, sanding in between with 100 grit Work quickly. Good luck. P.S. filler can be bought in small quantities(14-16 ounce jars) —Tim
