Topic tags/keywords: oak filling finishing

Hi, I am making a table which i hope to finish with ARM-R seal urtehane wiping varnish. The wood is pippy oak and so there are a number of small pits and spilts that need filling first. It has been suggested that hard wax filling sticks would work well for this, but would this be suitable under the varnish. I have also had other suggestions of using shellac filling sticks or epoxy. I will be doing a dummy run on some spare wood to trial all of these methods but welcome views and suggestions.

cheers Jonathan

I’ve used hard wax sticks under polyurethane many times without a problem.

Here’s a tip

Get a squeegee and pour (ARM-R seal urethane is fine for this or any varnish)
Work it into the pores, squeegee off the excess

Let dry then lightly sand before applying another coat.
