I am finishing up gluing up a butcher block island top that is 43×69 and I have a couple of questions about finishing it. Any suggestions would be greatly helpful. First, I have most of the glue up complete and it is planed to a uniform thickness, but there a couple of spots where the top has some small grooves along where two boards meet up. (There are probably 10 of them and they measure from 1/4” to 3/4” long and 1/8” wide) My questions is how to fill them so they blend in with the wood (red oak) as I would like the top to be uniformly flat. I am planning on using waterlox to finish the top, but I suspect it will not fill these little grooves. Should I use wood putty? Saw dust from the wood with glue? Other ideas?
By the way, we will not be using this to cut on, just as a counter top on our island.
Thanks in advance guys…
