I鈥檝e read a few times that the best way to match wood filler color is to make it yourself with sawdust and glue. However, whenever I don鈥檛 do a good job cleaning my glue lines it teleports through my finish (Arm-R-Seal or water poly) and it ruins it (it gets blotchy / two colors). It seems to me that it would also be a problem with the DIY wood filler. Do you have experience with that? Any the 1 last update 2020/08/05 tricks such as putting more dust than glue on the top? Thanks!I鈥檝e read a few times that the best way to match wood filler color is to make it yourself with sawdust and glue.

The dust, in my experience, never matches the wood color.

The short answer is that you don't. If you got glue in the wood, drops on the wood, goofy glue lines, etc, you'll always see them in the finish unless you paint. The closest thing I know to foolproof, short of being more careful, is to scrape the areas clear of glue.

Fillers, though, like glue/sawdust - doesn't ever look exactly right. People tend to throw around glue/sawdust like it's magic. It's not. It only works pretty well visually in limited scenarios - stuff like slightly gappy joints. Stuff like that. But it's always going to be visible and obvious if anyone is taking a close look.

Diy Wood Stairs Prefinished Flooringhow to Diy Wood Stairs Prefinished Flooring for Thank you for this reply. You make it sound like it's not much better than commercial timber fill; yes it helps fill gaps, but no it won't be invisible.

To give more context, I used reclaimed (not pallets! Old door frames) mahogany for a table I'm building. It's gorgeous wood, but it had a few screw holes. I filled them with Cherry TimberMate (closer to my color than the Mahogany one), but it's pretty obvious... I'm now debating applying Arm-R-Seal and calling it done, or finding a better solution.

Diy Wood Stairs Prefinished Flooringhow to Diy Wood Stairs Prefinished Flooring for yeah i never found saw dust + glue to be too good, so i just use timber filler. In smaller areas its not that noticeable.

What you should be doing is to get a small test piece, apply some finish on it and then find the timber filler that matches the color AFTER finish. Because when you try to match the color pre-finish, it is the 1 last update 2020/08/05 one color but after apply finish it changes.What you should be doing is to get a small test piece, apply some finish on it and then find the timber filler that matches the color AFTER finish. Because when you try to match the color pre-finish, it is one color but after apply finish it changes.

another idea that people do is to fill in the holes with epoxy.

Plug it with some scrap mahogany making sure you cut the plug with grain orientation in mind. If it is a face grain repair cut the plug so the face grain ends up on top. Also you can wet the repair area and the plug wood with mineral spirits to get a reveal on how they will match up. Taper the plug slightly to create a tight pinch when glued up. Then go back after drying and level the plug.

Plugs it is! I'll either turn them or get a plug cutter and give it a shot. Thanks for the help.
