Necessity is the Mother of Invention
But Mother doesn't like you to pick your nose!
I was working on a maple cutting boared with a walnut inlay and I had some gaps. I spent a couple of hours trying to match a wood filler to it. I stopped to blow my nose and noticed it residue in my hankerchief was just the right color.
So I grapped a piece of walnut and sanded it with 400 grit sandpaper to get a pile of really fine dust then mixed it with clear epoxy. It was a perfect match.
Some may think this is clever but its not! hahahahahahahahaha

As long as none of the members from this site are invited for dinner, I say you're in good shape. Very clever

Just proves that wearing a mask is so important. Image the sludge in your lungs.

Glad you joined in on the fun. There is so much information shared on this forum it would be easy to miss but we have been talking about making our own fillers on this forum for several years. Epoxy is a little over kill & expensive, most of us like clear drying glues like aileens or yellow glues like titebond. I've found a new glue this past year I really like and it is called Fusion goes on clear, dries clear, and is tacky very fast little pricy though.
