I have been eyeing some book matched hardwoods for tops on a couple of builds. They almost always seem to have voids, sometimes very small holes to larger cracks in them. The woods are mostly walnut, poplar, and buckeye. What do you use to fill these voids, and how do you go about it ? Anyone have experience with this ?

I like to us Medium super glue or epoxy. The superglue dries faster, especially if you use the accelerator. Allows sanding and reapplication if needed in short periods of time .

I agree with Axe. I do like to mix sawdust with epoxy especially for contrast of matching grains.

I like the look of a clear build so you can see the depth of the void. JB Weld will have a new crystal clear epoxy available in about a month, the 50-1 bar-top finish used to be popular. I think you can still find it in craft stores.
