113 – Filling Knots with Epoxy

Video - March 14, 2010

Ever find yourself short on material and that one board you really need has a nice open knot in it? You could always go out and buy more material, but sometimes it’s just easier and faster to stabilize and repair the knot. And instead of trying to hide the knot, sometimes it’s just better to embrace it, and make it look look resinous and natural. And that’s the goal here. Thankfully repairing knots is pretty easy with epoxy.

I like to use Transtint Dark Brown Dye and either West System Epoxy or Total Boat Epoxy.
