I am working with leopardwood and have a couple of spots that chipped out when cutting the slots for miter keys. I know that I can mix some of the leopardwood sawdust with glue and fill the holes with this. But, I’m finishing with several coats of Danish Oil – how will the filler, after it dries, look under the oil? Probably better than any over the counter fillers but….
Has anyone tried mixing sawdust with a bit of the Danish Oil and filling with this mixture? Seems as though if it dried ok that it would more closely match the rest of the wood. I know there are binders in D.O. that should hold everything together but don’t know for sure whether this will work.
I’m going to try a test on a piece of scrap but was wondering how some of you other LJ’s would handle this.
