I was turning this piece of wood to make a box and found a hole it wasn’t there on the surface of the wood. (no idea of what kind of wood)


can I use this to fill it in and continue turning?

It looks like pine to me. That is a knot hole that healed over. Yes, you can fill w/ epoxy.

If you use epoxy, put in a few drops of black food coloring (or any other color). Another option is use CA glue and sawdust, something colorful like padauk. If you coat around the hole with sanding sealer or thinned finish, it will prevent the CA glue from wicking and leaving a stain. You can use epoxy and sawdust but it tends to look a little muddy. Either way, I like to fill the hole before doing a final sanding.

Check the drying color of the epoxy, some of the fast set stuff dries yellowish – you many want to add color or sawdust.
