Hi, I got either a bark inclusion or left over bark from the tree and I want to fill it, the other choice would be to turn away another .5" of wood. My question is how to fill it. When I use epoxy in a deep crack or such it disappears and I have to refill it. What am I doing wrong thanks Mike

I could do that but in shaping the bowl I turned it out now it is just a mark. I mat CA it or leave it don't know yet. I don't like to use CA because it stains the wood

I'll try that if I can remember. I just remembered coffee, this would be a good place to try it. I started drinking coffee at home a few months ago so now I have it around the house. But the inclusion disappeared on to the floor . maybe my old man disease will go into remission and I'll remember next time.

got a problem with the shellac, all i can find are quarts and spray cans, and I don't use much shellac a quart would spoil. I am out of wood and might not be turning for a while. is there anything else that will seal CA out of wood

i have some plain bees wax I'll try that. I like oil and wax finishes or just oil. I would like to try walnut oil But I don't know where to look for it around me and I don't want to order it, shipping is to high
