Re: wood fillers

Karl, no, I've not tried this. So you may want to skip this: it just says what I would do in your situation, and why.
Were it I, and if some filler that I had handy was the easiest, best-looking solution, I would go ahead with it.
Here is my logic.
First, Mac tried it and had no problem.
Second, the solvents in the filler are gone, once it's dry. So you are left with exactly the kind of surface fresh epoxy mix loves to stick to: non-water-repellant, non-oily, rough-textured.
If the joint's in an area that requires strength, then stick ;) with thickened epoxy. Putty has none.
