Wood Fillers and Stains

The following content is syndicated content.

Sanding a Filled HoleWhen wood is stained, the stain soaks into the outer fibers to dye the wood and give it a different color. When glue seeps out of a joint and fills the pores of the wood, a wood stain applied to the project does not sink into to the glue-filled pores, so the area shows as a blemish.

A similar thing happens to pre-stain wood fillers that repair blemishes or cover up nail holes. However, there are ways to fill the holes without having them show in the finished product. Learn some thoughts on how to deal with Wood Fillers and Stains on your woodworking projects.
