Good video thanks, Charles, I’ve done it that way for a long time too but the Bondo and Table idea is a new one on me.

Some great tips. Thanks.

I noticed recently that they now make a Bondo brand wood filler. Claims to be “stainable”. Ever tried that?

Great video Charles. Can you tell us why when you were drilling the long hole your tip was to put a little drilling pressure towards the inside?

Tinnman,
by putting a slight upward tilt on the drill ,( 1 degree or so) it seems to counter people tendency to do the reverse and down angle just from the natural pressure of pushing the drill.
Having done numerous bed classes, this has been the case, , and especially with a long bit, I have seen them actually drill thru the face of the rail
I should have explained that more .

Jim, I will have to check that out , I cant fathom it being stainable, but who knows, its basically polyester resin and filler, cant see it being porous enough to take the stain.

BTW, got some emails about the “bondo Spreader”... Harbor Freight is where i got mine .
