I’ve seen differing opinions on how to fill small anomalies in a woodworking project. Some people suggest epoxy/sawdust, some yellow glue/sawdust and some suggest woodfillers. I suspect that all of them work, but which produces the most professional results and why? I am surprised that such a simple thing has not been video-ized yet on the net. Can anyone comment on the ratios of glue to dust?
My specific problem, is small tears in plywood veneer on a desktop I am building from Walnut. These are due to minor tear out from my saw, where the plywood meets the solid edging. None of the tears are in excess of 1mm squared, so I am looking for the best finish.
My finish will consist of a tung oil product, followed up by several coats of matt wiping varnish and I want the best finish possible.
What do people suggest here?
