I am refinishing a dining room table that has two dime size gouges. I bought Minwax stain and also Minwax wood filler figuring it would be the best choice considering the same company makes the stain. It will not absorb stain well at all. I am using Minwax Colonial Maple and you can see these areas plain as day. Says right on the wood filler "stainable". Any ideas? I tried to stain the filler with a darker stain and still, it barely changes color.
