erikbojerik Posted January 22, 2007 Report Share Posted January 22, 2007 OK...someone please set me straight on this epoxy grain fill thing. I'm using 5-minute 2-part epoxy (Loctite), cures nice & hard in about an hour. I am applying what I feel to be a medium-thick layer. When I level with 300 grit, I get the usual slight uneven-ness but the problem I'm having is that I cannot seem to level everything (eliminating every tiny shiny spot) without sanding through to the wood underneath. You can see the dark lines that are the shiny low spots left in the epoxy; when I try to get these level, I always end up sanding through to the wood nearby (light spots on the lower bout). So my question is....should I be levelling this so that I have a very thin layer of epoxy covering everything, without going down to wood? Or should I sand down to the wood everywhere, leaving the epoxy just in the pores? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
