A long time back I started a very basic wall mirror project, then promptly had a kid and left the thing collecting dust for a couple years! Well, I’m picking it up and have a question before I proceed.
I had already glued up the main sides and top/bottom pieces, using blind mortise and tenon joinery. It was my first attempt and generally OK but I do have some small gaps between the shoulders of the tenons and the face of the edge of the mating component. They’re on the surface, not on all joints, and probably ~1/16” or less.
Anyways, I’m ready for final sanding and staining and trying to figure what to do with these. I could just leave them but I think it might be better to fill and stain them. Any recommendations on doing this and how to do so? What should I used to do that..some type of putty?
