I'm very new to this woodworking thing. The bug has bit and I love it!
I've only stained one item and it was oak, so I didn't have to worry about knots in the wood. I'm going to build the farmhouse table soon out of pine and I plan on staining it. Is there something clear I can use to fill the knots on the wood to make the tabletop surface smooth and flat? Has anyone used a product that filled knots in wood? How does it work? Before the stain? After the stain? Any input would be greatly appreciated!
