Default help me fill it in

I'm looking for some help.....

Look closely at the picture and you will see my uh-oh.

I can make a mixture of wood glue and saw dust to fill in my mistake. But can I successfully stain it so it's not as noticeable?

Thanks.

Frank

Frank , I see why you never made it as a surgeon j/k


I could see wood filler and painting it turning out ok , but doesn't stain bring every detail out?

I donít always insulate , but when I do .

Frank:

Another way: sand the same type of wood, collecting the sawdust. Mix sawdust with an adhesive (e.g. PVA, epoxy, etc.) Fill the gap.

Frank I'm a noob , there's probably someone here with some expert advice .
I was thinking of just eliminating that lower step altogether?
While your at it go deeper and create an inner border line around the inside of the perimeter and see how that looks? At least your salvaging it

Seeing your work makes me realize I'm in need of a bandsaw . They scare me though

I donít always insulate , but when I do .

Dang, I hate that when it happens. Dunnit myself more than once.

I don't think fill and stain would come out the way you want it to. It would be noticeable.

Mike

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

How about if you fill it but just paint the top of the step a very dark brown or black. Then you can stain the rest of it and the painted level will add contrast.

Oliver your a genius !

That's the best idea I've heard so far . I like contrast and should have thought of that one myself

Rainman1,

Respect the band saw, but learn to use one so you can get rid of the fear. It's a very handy tool to have in your shop. Wish I still had one. But working in amachone shop gives me access to tools, allowing me to save my money for an official shop one day.
