Any of you have a preference for a grain filler for open
woods like oak? I have one with a local label on it and I
don't think it does very good.
If you have one you like, let me know and tell me where to get it.
Thanks

Timbermate is the sweetest wood filler I've used. I don't use grain filler but I suppose it would be pretty darn expensive to use Timbermate as a one.

Kevin, alot of flooring guys will trowel fill an entire wood floor befor their last sand to fill any cracks, nail holes and grain. I personally don't do it but I agree it would get expensive.

Yeah no kidding. That stuff is like 20 bucks a quart if I remember right. That's fine for a putty but ridiculous for a grainfiller. Certainly better grain fillers to use in that situation. I've never heard anyone ask for the grain to be filled before, in fact it would end out looking like laminate. Only species I would consider it on would be mahogany as the veneer just never turns out like the lumber.
