Subject:
Temporarily filling a void Question.

Barry Irby
>I have a piece of sycamore that is just a little past spalted. It has a void in the end grain in one of those interesting and vaguely star burst shapes that Mother Nature gives us once in a while. I turned a hollow form out of the sister piece and lost some of the detail in the shape of the void. I tried driving pieces of wood into the sections and that helped. I also soaked it with CA. I want to turn the second piece and was wondering if there ls some way to fill the void while I turn it and then remove the filler later?
