I am building furniture using red pine 'chicot' (dead wood, dried standing with no bark) . It is a beautifull grain, reddish tint, has been air-dried for 2 years since cutting in addition. There are some cracks and gouges along the grain. I was thinking of of using a wood hardener then filling the cracks and gouges with Ecotrowel, tinted and then verathane the sanded surface. Is this ok ? Is Ecotrowel the right product for that ? What tint is recomended for Ecotrowel ?
Thanks, I think it does. I am not trying to match the colour, but rather make a contrast. Since the wood is light with a reddish tint, I wanted to make the filler dark brown or even black which looks good on old wood. So the pigment would mix better with flowcast ?
