Properly Filled Wood Pores

All open grained parts are paste filled to provide a stable base for topcoats.  Paste filler is a far better material to fill the pores of wood compared to building sealers or lacquer in the pores.  A properly filled board will accept topcoats without absorbing too much finishing material.   


Paste filler is liberally applied.

The bulk of the filler is troweled off the board.

Burlap is used to wipe the filler into the pores.  After two days of drying, the parts will be ready for sealer.
