I am building a 12 foot redwood table out of very old water tower planks. I've already got the planks glued together and sanded smooth. Problem is, there are a few small areas about 4 to 5 inches of dry rot that I would like to fill but would prefer not to have them looking like patches.

So I have two questions:

1. What is the suggested product or process to fill these areas?
2. What is the suggested product I should use to seal the entire surface?

I'm not planning on using stain because this wood is already gorgeous.

Thank you

Can you route out the dry rot place and insert a better piece of wood. A piece of wood inserted into a place that size would look better then putty. If you are just going to putty it I would use bondo and hand draw the grain with a glaze to blend it in as best as possible.
