I want to seal end grain wood so I can apply a paint finish that will be smooth with no grain showing. What is best for this. I heard CA glue works, but how do you apply it without your fingers being glued to the wood?

I’ve used drywall “spackle” to seal endgrain on MDF before painting. It worked great, is cheap, and easy to sand and clean up.

Tightbond glue mixed with sawdust from the same wood.
