Wood filler for staining
Can you recommend the best wood filler to smooth out small gouges, and then take stain well? The current project is repairing a door that a dog scratched up. The door is stained and poly'ed. I'd like a wood filler that can be on the smooth and creamy side, since the gouges are rather shallow/fine. I'll try to match the stain as best I can, but I'd like the filler to take the stain about the same as the wood. This isn't super high end work, but I'd like it to look reasonable for the price, as opposed to replacing the door.
I'd also consider using Polyshades for this - maybe that would blend in the wood filler better?
