I saw where a guy, (turns out lots of guys) are using crushed up turquoise to fill imperfections in wood.
It’s a messy process and the clear epoxy is not easy to work with nor be neat with. You may as well just give up and make a mess because you have to sand it down anyway.
Some of the deep voids let the turquoise drop down too far so that looks bad.
I have several choices for filler from blue metal, to gold metal, to agate, turquoise, different color sand.
I chose turquoise for my first try.
It looks ugly as hell while you’re doing it. I thought I ruined the wood several times.
I plan on giving this to my son for Christmas. I don’t think it’s something he’ll appreciate till some years pass, but I hope one day he will try his hand at woodworking.
