Shouldn’t be that noticeable considering.

A tiny drop of epoxy applied with a toothpick should take care of it.

I guess I’ll just try it out. Thanks. And I laughed out loud when I saw your pics of your workbench @TheFridge. Great job on that by the way. And I should totally see if there are any local cabinet stores in town for off cuts. Never heard of any companies but I also never bought any cabinets either.

You can epoxy on top of epoxy, but you should rough it up a bit and clean it first (water, mineral spirits, alcohol, etc..).

Cheers,

I work extensively in mesquite, which requires sometimes huge quantities of epoxy to fill voids, strengthen cracks, etc. I always do multiple pours to gradually fill the voids. When I get bubbles in the surface after planing, I find it’s easier to use a hard fill product like black Mohawk Plane Stick to fill them. After applying finish, its impossible to tell what’s epoxy and what’s fill.

A thick CA glue should work too and set up faster.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. All very helpful. I’ll have to look into the Mohawk Plane Sticker, never heard of it before. So, thank you for that Rich.

Have your say...
