    plywood fissure?

    Gmorinng everyone
    so if youve been followinng along. started putting primer on the doors.
    it might be my ocd but i dont think so yet.
    noticed here and there that after the first coat of primer dried.
    on the plywood beadboard panels, i can see what i think are short grain ends lifting a bit.
    im sure it will show thru paint. so before putting on second coat of primer, whats the best way to fix these?
    its not all over, just a few of the panels, not all.
    the panels had been sanded to 180 grit.
    im thinking if i sand them back down lightly and then use the 3m glazing putty, but
    not sure. anyone have these experiences?

    regards eric

    Glazing putty works well but don't use the orange/red stuff, use gray or white, or it will show through the next coat of primer.

    For grain raised by paint I would just sand it before putting the next coat on.

    To patch and fill voids I prefer good old Bondo. It cures in 10 minutes and can be easily sanded. In my experience it also hangs onto wood VERY well.

    I've been using epoxy. Forgot about Bondo. So much quicker. Better idea.
