I joined 2 pieces of pine together. How can I make the seam invisible? Answered
I am replacing the stair treads in my house by removing the carpet and then replacing them with pine treads bought from Lowe's. The problem is I have 2 stairs that are longer than the 4' tread. I joined two pieces together to make a longer one using a dowel rig, glued them together, and clamped them until dry. Unfortunately the pieces weren't completely matched up so I used wood filler and sanded until smooth. After painting the board with black porch paint I can see the seam. Any ideas on how to get rid of the visible line?
Thanks in advance.
