I has been done, but some times you get "sparkle" from the occasional piece
of grit off of the sand paper that works loose, gets mixed in and placed in
the crack or hole. And if you stain the glue does not always work out well.
It will fill the hole but might not take stain as well as you would
I don't finish much myself but when I finished my basement trim I
used the stuff in the little jars that you can get at the BORG or
about any hardware store.
I got a color lighter and a color darker than I thought I needed and
mixed my own variations. I had four or five mixes on the same board
to use as I walked around filling nail holes. Oh...I applied it after
all staining and finishing.
I stain the dust before mixing it with the glue using the same stain I use on
the wood. Let it dry for a few hours and then mix it with the glue (I use
Titebond III). Works well and is a lot less noticeable than trying to stain
it after it is mixed and applied.
