Stainable Wood Fillers

For this little review we will be testing how well two wood fillers work. We are using MinWax and Elmer’s Wood Filler on pine then staining with MinWax English Chestnut. Using a plastic blade I applied both wood fillers and allowed to dry then sanded smooth. Photos were taken during the process.

It’s my opinion the Elmer’s Wood Filler worked nicer than the MinWax product. Both sanded easily and to a powder. I would prefer to be on the lighter side rather than a dark spot in the wood. If it was my job, I would use a custom blended wood putty rather than a filler. The color can be controlled easily with putty.
