  • wood filler

    I stack cut several ornaments ,I used a backer board but I still
    had some tear out on the walnut and mahogany. I went to Lowes
    and found some wood filler for these two woods mentioned. The
    walnut color did ok,but the mahogany turned it more of a dark red
    than I liked.My question is can you do something to lighten the wood filler
    color? I am afraid if I try to dig out the filler I will only tear the wood more.
    I wished now I had not put wood filler on and just seen what it would have
    looked like after sanding and finishing.

    Unfortunately I don't know of any way to lighten the filler.
    I like to save the sawdust from projects it is super fine and can be made into filler with urethane,
    If I am cutting two species of wood at once the blend of sawdusts masks the cracks beautifully.
    Heck if I get enough sawdust maybe I will make MDF

      Not sure what type you got. If you got the pencils it is easy to just go over them with whatever color you want. I like those alot. You can blend colors easily. If it is the small little jars. Try using some acetone to take the color out. I am not sure why you are worried about the back though. Seems trivial.

        I forgot to mention the 5000 watt(?) generator his brother gave him. His brother does house remodeling and lots of times people give him “stuff” just to get rid of it. Bruce had to drain the gas, change the fuel lines and some other minor things for $35 and it starts on the first pull....

        This is his $40 haul. The paint bush was never used. He cleaned up the grinder. He added up all the attachments and brand new everything would be almost $800. This was their yearly tool swap. Every month members bring things they don’t need and swap smaller items. Even scrap wood. Anything 5”x5”...

        Where are you located in England? I was at RAF Lakenheath back in the early 70's and bought my 70 TVR Vixen, which I still have. I absolutely loved my time there.!...
