Good Evening All,

First of all, I am pretty new here and I must comment on the nice people here. What a wonderful place. Other forums seem to be more extreme and not as friendly.

Ok, now thats over. I am making a maloof low back chair and on the back rest I used epoxy mixed with walnut saw dust to help hide the joint that was just not perfect. Now after sanding tonight, I am really nervous that the joint is going to show….and show in a bad way. Is there anyway I can cover this epoxy? The line of epoxy where the joint comes together is about 1/16 of an inch, but it is going to be facing the person that is coming to sit down or is looking at the chair and will stand out like a sore thumb. Im nervous because I have 1.2 million hours in this chair. Anyone have any ideas?

I look forward to chating with you folks and making some new friends,

-- Jeff, Indiana

Am I safe to assume that the chair is made of walnut? Do you have a pic or can snap a pic of the epoxy line? My guess that the epoxy created a very dark “hey, look at me line.” I have some thoughts but will wait to hear back from you or see a pic. Hope I can help… I’ve been there, done that.

without seeing a pic, it is hard to give you an answer
