Wood Filler & Stain?
What is the correct type of wood filler & stain to use?
I'm repairing the mahogany plywood deck of an 1958 Peterborough Nomad and there's one area that's been gouged (an "L" tear)that was previously filled with regular wood filler (eg: Elmer's).
I've chiseled most of that out.
As well, there's a number of holes (nail countersinks; old screws removed) - all of which need filling.
I've been 'advised' to use an epoxy wood filler & stain it with 'matching' stain before filling the 'holes' etc., but haven't had much luck confirming this, nor finding the appropriate product. 'Others' have said to use regular wood filler (eg: Home Depot)& stain it.
I'm not sure that's right either?
The complete deck has been stripped of old varnish etc., and sanded.
Although there's some variation in colour (due to weathering I suppose) I was not planning to stain the deck but just varnish it as it was done originally.
But I want to ensure to get the 'hole' repairs done right the first time!
Thus looking for the best advice!!!
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
