So I was turning this walnut bowl, and the blank that I started with had some minor cracks in it. Once I got it roughed out the way it wanted me to have it, the cracks were a bit more obvious than I anticipated. I started to fill them with some thin CA, but I don't have the CA hardener spray, so I had to wait a while for the tiny puddles to dry all the way.
I'd fill the crack, then leave it to dry for 20 or 30 minutes, then come back and put some more in. I wasted a lot of time on it. Then it struck me. If the CA in the crack is wet, and I rub some fine dust into it, then put more CA on that, it'd fill in faster, dry faster, and probably look a whole lot better. I felt like a genius for a second!
Then I felt like a dope
, because this is probably what real turners always do.
I thought I'd share my story to see if this is how anyone else does it, or, on the off chance a new turner also didn't know about it, maybe I'd be helpful.
