I'm building a table with the walnut top shown below. (Sorry for the blurry photos).
I think I should fill this 8" long crack. I need to decide how. I'm considering cleaning up the edges and cutting/carving a piece to insert and sand down. Probably something a little darker. Another possibility is a filler - I've read elsewhere on this site about wood dust mixed into glue.
I'll treat the small crack at the lower right similarly.
- What if I just leave it as is?
- If filler, how do I make "wood dust" and what glue (I have titebond on hand)?
- Any other suggestions?
Edit (since many people look at this question)
Here's the table finished. The filled crack runs behind the orange model (which is a sequence of slices of a tesseract). I used 30 minute epoxy and sawdust from the same wood.
