JouniK Posted September 2, 2019 Report Share Posted September 2, 2019 Hi, Suggestions for methods of filling poplar burl (1cm thick drop top) voids when using water based stains and an oil finish? I am pretty new to building guitars and wood working let alone working with poplar burl and was wondering how would you guys treat the wood when option is to use water based stains and an oil finish. I want as much as possibly to highlight the wood textures with stains and use an oil finish. How do I minimize the affect of filling the voids with glue etc. to stains or oil finish? I have read about filling the voids with epoxy/CA glue, CA glue + wood dust/coffee grounds or let the voids open. Any pros or cons to these? How about sealing the grain?
