I need to fill some small holes and gaps in several oval boxes I am making. The wood is unfinished cherry that will be finished with shellac. In the past I have used fillers that hardened in the container soon after initial use. The filler became useless for future needs. Can you recommend a wood filler that does not get hard in the container after I open it? Thanks

I started using Timbermate a while ago and like the results.  It is available in multiple shades, including cherry.  It doesn't shrink, crack, or fall out.  If it dries in the container, you can add a little water to reconstitute it. They sell it at Woodcraft if you have one near you or on Amazon.

+1 on the Timbermate.  I've used several different brands of wood filler and all have failed to impress.  Timbermate is good stuff.

I've gotten it at Woodcraft before, but I don't have one close by, so I ordered it from Klingspor Woodworking the last time.

Also like the Timbermate. And I just ordered a small jar of "Goodfilla" in a cherry color to test. It is less expensive than the Timbermate, per oz., and gets good reviews but I've never used it.

Timbermate is nice to work with but do not use a steel putty knife which will turn it dark.  I t also has a smell of burnt electrical equipment so don't go looking for something burning.
 Depending on project you may want to apply a coat of finish first then fill as it makes it easy to clean the surrounding area.   Roly

Most of the fillers like Plastic Wood and Famo Wood can be reconstituted with acetone.

Timbermate can be tinted.

You can also look into wax filler sticks. Check Mohawk.

All I can say is good luck matching it....

I use a paste made of fine sawdust and whatever finish I'm going to use on the piece.  Works well and I know it will be perfectly compatible with the ultimate finish.

Anyone still use fine sawdust power mixed with shellac or sanding sealer? That’s my first choice for small holes and cracks.
