Fill Large Knot Holes


I have some large knot holes on the edges of the timbers. What's a good filler??

I'd use bondo but can it be tinted a reddish brown?

They have white hardener for Bondo and Bondo for wood with a tan hardener.

Try tinting the white one, if the wood color does not work for you.

Avoid the blue hardener, Iím having problems with finishes sticking to the blue.

What I used as usual was the Famowood putty, it came out well esp after we applied the dark stain.
