I tried that Gorilla two part epoxy and it apparently didn’t give two equal portions. It was the 5 minute stuff, 24 hours it was still sticky. I went to the local Ace hardware and bought their brand that came with 2 separate tubes, resin and hardener. I used acetone to rubbed down and soften the Gorilla epoxy and dug much of it out with a dental pick. I guess you could use anything small; a nail or screwdriver. I just happened to have a dental pick handy. My thought was to just fill the gaps and it seemed to do that job quite well.

I have used a plastic resin kit I bought at a craft store to fill knots with good success. West Marine also makes a two part system that I understand works real well. I know Jamestown Distributors has that.

Best of luck.
