They have finished the new deck. That's a good thing.
There are a couple of knot holes in the top surface of a couple of the railing
header, however, and, that's a bad thing.
These holes are not through and through, just ugly pits that will collect water
and make for ant sized skating rinks in the winter. Sorry, I can't afford to
but skates for the ants.
The railing headers are pressure treated. Does anybody have any suggestions for
a type of filler to use in these pesky holes prior to sealing so that the till
material does not come out.
I am considering boring them in with a forstner bit and making wooden plugs,
but that is a lot of work if there is a simpler solution.
Would filling them with a build up of Gorilla glue work? Or should I be looking
at something like an outdoor version of plastic wood? How would these products
react with the chemicals in the lumber?
Thanks for any thoughtful and insightful suggestions.
