Do you use sawdust in woodworking?
« on: September 16, 2019, 05:05:59 PM »
I see that there are a lot of topics here about what to do with lots of sawdust from milling. As far as what to do with a little bit, I watched a video about furniture restoration, where sawdust was being added to the glue, in order to make staining it look better. Maybe it would be good for filling holes in wood, so less glue or other filler would have to be used.

i know a doc with an off grid cabin, and he takes mine to use for his low tech composting cabin toilet.  only # 2 into a 5 gallon bucket, then cover with sawdust.  dump when full. rinse and repeat!  the saw dust i use for filler is from fine sanding, and many will add glue to the crack and then just sand over it, with the wet glue in the imperfection. 8)

Well, I don't think I'd want to add glue to that crack...

I will take fine dust out of my orbital sander bag to mix with glue to fill cracks on woodwork.  We are talking about a minute amount.

Ah, maybe I'll try using more sawdust though, mixed with construction adhesive, next time I fill a dead knot hole.  I've used that by itself and it works, but doesn't look like wood.

I've had people come and get my planer/jointer shavings for all kinds of things. Hog bedding, leveling underneath above ground pools, putting in horse stalls, mixing with lawn clippings to make compost. But most of it still just washes down the mountain when it rains. It came from nature. I guess it's ok if it returns.

Mostly I use it to without glue to fill imperfections in my land.
It also works good in the bottom of the box with the baby chickens.
