Hi-<BR> While browsing the paint section of a local hardware store today, I happened across a container of this fine, light brown powder that mixes with either oil stains, water-based, lacquer, or alcohol-based stains/ colors, to form a wood filler/ putty. I bought some to try.<BR> <BR> I'm hoping this is the "better mousetrap" I've been looking for, regarding wood puttys. <BR>(I haven't found one yet, that accepts stains as well as I think a "stainable" putty should- and I've tried a bunch.)<BR> <BR>Product label promising "Perfect match with stains." Sandable as well.<P><BR> Has anyone used this product yet?<BR> Looking for an experienced "thumbs" up or down re: this stuff, hopefully, before I experiment with it.<BR> <P> Den<P>------------------<BR>

Den,<BR>I bought some Minwax Stainable Wood Filler that does a fair job of accepting color but I find as a filler its quite coarse and doesn't easily get into tiny cracks (like a veneer patch) the way I would like it to. Not very strong either.<BR>I guess there's some tradeoffs in getting a good putty/filler and still have it take stain accurately. Doesn't seem like it should be so difficult. Pre-mixing makes the most sense.<BR>Let us know how it works.<P>-Bill<BR><P>------------------<BR>

Sure thing, ex-. <BR> I'll either let everyone know how it works out, or... I'll send you some to try out , if you want. (Let me know.) <BR> I don't have any project requiring its use right now.<BR> <BR> Den<P>------------------<BR>
