Hi Guys, I’m attempting to fill a hole in a table in which its gone through the veneer. I read somewhere that you can take sawdust from the wood and create a slurry with glue that will closly match the wood color. My question is what kind of glue do I use and the recommended procedure for doing so. As always I appreciate any feedback…Thanks, Kirk

Hi Kirk,
You’ll get the best results using shellac sticks.

A lot will also depend on the size of the hole. I have used this method to fill nail holes using sawdust and yellow tite bond glue. If its a larger hole you may have finishing problems with stain not taking if to much glue is used. It doesn’t hurt to try it, if all else fails and your not happy with the end results of what ever method you use. You can always put in a dutchman patch.
