I’ve got a board that I think looks pretty good. Here it is:
Now you’ll notice the little specks in the middle. The second shot show a “long” speck.
I want to fill those tiny specks. I usually use two part epoxy for knots and any other small defects. But these particular specks are small enough that you couldn’t put in small sewing needled into it. (Yes I did get that needle out to see.) So I’m thinking of using CA glue for these.
I see a lot of posts using CA glue for turnings and for inlay but can’t find one that deals with just tiny speck holes. I want to fill and be able to sand flush.
I’ve never used CA glue for this purpose. Is it a good filler for these tiny holes or would you use a different method?
I’ve thought about the sawdust and glue trick – but I don’t want to take a chance of changing the color in the center of the black spots where the hole is.
Please let me know your thoughts.
