Wood Filler

Hello, I'm restoring a Victorian Humidor that is not at all square. I don't usually work with veneer and am trying to find out what filler I could use to shape the box and square it up ( it's off by about a 1/16 on both sides ) before applying Burl Veneer. I've been told that there is a green automotive filler that works better than regular wood filler for what I'm trying to accomplish, but I don't know what it's called and would like to see what someone with more experience in this field thinks. Also I've Progressive MS and looking for something that isn't to hard to sand. Thank you for any information you can send me.

Thanks Again, Chris Collins

If the filler is going to completely covered with veneer I would use a fiberglass filler like bondo. If some of it would show you could mix a universal tinting color to the bondo to make it wood tone before you apply it. It doesn't accept a stain very well after hardened so any color should be applied as it's mixed.
