“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with Sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Chemcraft Pore Filler




Customers find that no other pore filler compares!

Finish expert and lutherie instructor Brian Boedigheimer recommended Chemcraft Pore Filler to us at an Association of Stringed Instrument Artisans (ASIA) symposium, saying:

“There's no better paste wood filler. No one should ever have to add more than 10% UTC (universal tint color) by volume. 8-12 hours of drying time should be enough under decent conditions of temperature and humidity, perhaps up to 24 hours drying time if conditions are not perfect. Usually I fill and sand the next day without issue.”

  • It fills better.
  • It dries harder.
  • It's non-shrinking.
  • It's non-oily.
  • It cleans up better.
  • It is easy to color match.
Application Instructions
The Chemcraft pore filler application instructions include a couple of color recipes (Brian Boedigheimer recommends 10% added tint by volume, but you may find that a smaller ratio works for you).
Also see our universal tints (UTC's) for coloring your pore filler.
