I seem to remember Paul filling in some portions of a project with a bit of wax. Does anyone have experience with that? I’d like to get to a point where my joinery is flawless, but until then I’d hate to scrap a project because of a slight imperfection. Thanks for any advice.
I haven’t heard of using wax to fill gaps. The trick I use mostly is to take some sawdust of the wood I’m cutting, mix it with a little wood glue and make a paste/putty to fill in the gap. This usually works pretty well for small gaps, for larger ones I don’t know. I’ve also heard of using handplane shavings of the same wood to fill slight gaps.
I’d be interested to hear the one about wax, though.
Thanks for the reply. After a bit more searching I found the answer to my question from Master Sellers himself. The comment was made in the first minute or so if the video on how to finish with shellac. Paul says he was covering some pin heads from a detail he attached to the piece he made. I actually feel stupid for assuming he would have happy joints! Back to the garage to keep practicing.
