So I have been pondering the solution to this question for a few weeks now. Needless to say I have yet to come up with an answer that I am convinced will work. I figured the best thing to do is to reach out to the seasoned veterans of LJ.
So here is what I have going on. A large crack is forming on a pine table top. It does not go completely through to the bottom, but it is expanding out to make the crack longer. It is about 1/4” deep and 6” long.
I do not feel that this is a simple wood putty filler solution because it is so deep. Are there any other options here to fill the hole and keep this from growing? I was thinking some liquid nails in the crack and then filler on top of the liquid nails to seal and stain it. I thought about shellac maybe? But then the problem is matching up the stain. I would also hate like hell to have to tape it off, sand it down, fill it, stain it and poly it all while trying to match the current finish. If I have no choice, then I have no choice.
Any thoughts or solutions to this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Happy Woodworking & Holidays.
