I have an old Marlin shotgun. Right at the tang area on the walnut stock there is a crack with a small piece of walnut missing. I would like to repair it and try to make it look as invisable as possible. I have some old cut offs of walnut stocks and was wondering if I could use this in a sawdust form mixed with some type of glue to fill the hole. It's y shaped and probably 3/16"- 1/4" at it's widest point. Maybe trying to cut a chip and insert it would be better?

I used some sanding dust and superglue, it was very dark as a filler.

I would recommend cutting the area square and epoxy gluing a piece in and then work it back.

I have an older Stevens dbl bbl that I used Acraglas Bedding with the dark stain, it repaired the area okay but is darker than the wood not noticeable from a distance but up close very evident.

Here is a couple of pics of the superglue and sanding dust repairs, these pics are before I got the boiled linseed oil coats on they now are blended in better after the wood darkened.

Last pic is of the color that blends well with the fill.
