Excellent stainable filler Excellent stainable filler No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

While constructing my entertainment center, I cut a mortise in the wrong position. As this mortise (slot) was cut in a location that would normally not be seen, I decided to use a stainable filler. I chose Elmer’s Carpenter’s Wood Filler Max Stainable. As you can see from the second photo, the result was quite good. I also used this product to cover some small holes made by the brad point of a forstner bit. In this case you can not see any evidence of hole or the product usage.

The product is gray when applied and remains gray when dry. Therefore I do not recommend using it when not using stain.

Did you use water or oil stain? I have some of this filler and haven’t been so lucky with my results. Can’t remember if I tried oil, water, or both types of stain but it always came out much lighter than the wood. And did you apply the stain after or mix it with the putty before? Thanks.
