    I've tried wet sanding with shellac as an alternative. Yellow glue is unstainable in my experience.

    All wood fillers must be sanded to original wood and a little below. The solvents in putties seal the wood to some depth. Some solvents will actually raise the wood a little bit.

    Nice tip, but if you were going to stain your project, doesn't the glue seal the wood somewhat and make for a blotchy looking color?
