Re: knotts in ceder siding
I have used "Bondo" for years to take care of fallen out knots and woodpecker holes. I tape the perimeter of the whole to prevent the Bondo from getting smeared into the surrounding texture of the wood. I build up the Bondo until one more coat will top it off. I then take a plastic spackle knife and cut teeth in it with the edge of a file. I then put the final coat of Bondo on and draw the toothed sc****r over the wet Bondo to simulate the rouge cedar siding texture. After pulling the tape, the hole should hardly be noticable.
MinWax makes a polyester wood filler, but I swear it is nothing but Bondo with a wood tone to it. It sure smells the same and it costs twice as much!
