Re: Filling hairline cracks? If you do not like the looks of the superglue in the hairline crack you can rub some lighter wood dust into the wet glue. Over fill it and sand it after it dries. I save wood sanding dust from different species of wood for this and to tint epoxy. Use a wood dust from a lighter colored wood because the glue will ...

The grain filler, with or without stain can be depended upon to fill the hairlines you have, but be patient and work it deeply into the grain with a squeege, and around the cracks, leave it proud on the surface (don't rub it off completely), to be sanded with 320 on a hard flat block (no padding or cushion).

Great way to fill small cracks or gaps so that it isnt visible. Takes stain perfectly.

Hairline cracks, like the small ones in my front door, can be filled with a wood putty or filler. All are sold in small quantities at home centers, hardware stores, and online. (Larger cracks are a lot more complicated, and I'd look elsewhere for a solution)

One method I use is to run blue painter's tape down each side of the crack to protect as much as the visible grain as possible. I then run a line of glue (of choice) along the crack and use a pliable spatula to force the glue in the crack.

Alternatively, if you want to fill cracks in wood with glue and sawdust, start by getting sawdust that matches the type and color of your wood. Then, fill the crack with wood glue and sprinkle the sawdust on top until the glue is completely covered. From here, simply wait for the glue to dry overnight, then sand the crack smooth with sandpaper ...

Answer (1 of 2): It depends on the application and what you want the final results to accomplish. On a new piece, you can fill the hairline crack with epoxy. I use a very thin sculpting spatula to work it into the crack. The epoxy will slowly run in leaving a gap so it may take several layers to ...

Likewise, How do you fill small cracks in wood? Caulk/silicone is a great option if you have a small crack that needs to be filled, especially on the bottom or underside of your furniture. If you have a large crack or hole, I recommend using Bondo, Epoxy, Putty or Wood Filler in those situations, however, this is a nice option for those smaller joints or areas!

That is the only thing I like about using CA for hairline cracks, you can use the thin grade and it draws right into the crack and you can then follow up with a medium grade glue to fill a larger crack when needed. I just don't like what CA glue does to the wood around the repair.

Instead of trying to pack the crack with wood dough to hide it, try fixing it with CA (cyanoacrylate) glue.It worked great for me. STEP 1 - Insert a toothpick into the crack to hold it open. Wearing rubber gloves, coat the tips of your fingers with paste wax.This prevents glue from sticking to the gloves. STEP 2 - Apply wax to the area surrounding the crack to protect it from excess glue.

Filling Choices. Besides wood putty, there are several glue-based fill options.For very small cracks, add drops of cyanoacrylate into the crack while sanding the area. The sanding dust, called "swarf," combines with the still-wet glue to fill the crack as you sand, making an instant patch quite close to the color of the wood.

Wood filler or wood glue may work to fill the crack and would be better for exterior use. The glue is probably more flexible than the filler and may be better for filling the crack. I've used the wood filler before, but usually to fill nail holes or fill in small cracks. For a few bucks and some sanding, it may be worth a go round.
