So I mainly just filled in the holes from staples and nails - the intentional holes. A few of the risers had pretty large gauges in them so I filled those in too. But other than that I left them to their own devices. I'm not done sanding all of the stain off yet though, so I'll have to do another round of wood fill after that.
Any tips or advice on how to tackle the profile of the treads? Please don't tell me I'll have to do that part by hand! I fear I might though...
On a side note, I've spent a good while with my nose to the grain of these steps and this is my favourite riser...look at that grain! Almost makes me sad to paint over it.
Did you get any projects done last night??
