Filling holes

Post  paradd on Sun Jul 28, 2013 8:49 am

Hi, I have a shell I am doing some restoration work on. I need to fill some holes from an after market strainer which has been removed. Advice on the best product for this would be welcome. Cheeers.

Wood filler does work but is the quick, cheap and cheerful option. The best method is to find maple or
similar hardwood dowels. Buy them to fit the correct hole size and glue them in, sand, wood fill and finish
as normal. For larger patches a piece from a donor drum needs to be cut.
