1. I have a box I’m building that has many, many, many coats of lacquer applied. To fill in some minor opened grain, I’ve dropped in straight lacquer using a straight pin. I got a ‘ding’ on the top and have been trying to fill it in using the same technique, but with little success. It appears to dry from the outside in, and when I block sand it after drying I still have the little divit. It’s too large to leave as is. Any suggestions?
2. I got some tearout when routing some wenge on multiple projects (Christmas gifts). I went to Lowes to get some ebony wood filler, but mistakingly purchased wood putty. After filling in all of the tearout, the next morning I realized my error when it was still pliable. Any ideas as how to get all of the oil from the putty out of the areas so a filler can be used? To note, the project is a sushi tray that needs to have an oil application on it. BTW, I have some water based ebony wood filler, but assume that won’t work with an oil finish. Any help there would be appreciated as well.
As you can see, this year’s Christmas projects aren’t going very smoothly. Thanks as always.
