    This works well, also for filling screw holes, larger cuts, etc. Short, sweet solution!

    I dig the use of filler with glue. If you have a pencil sharpener with a trap to catch the shavings you could utilize that as well I would think. But I can get saw dust easy enough. Thanks for the tip.

    Due to a lack of scale, I have no idea how big of a spot you were filling. I'll try this anyway. I get the idea.

    Thanks.
