    I drilled four holes in the bottom of two of my speaker cabinets for speaker spikes. The hole does not penetrate the cabinet but does go in 3/4". I decided to only use three spikes per speaker and need to plug two of the holes. Any suggestions? Silicone caulk? Wood putty?

    After doing some research, it seems that "Bondo" available at any auto supply store may do the trick. . .

    Chad,
    Another great material is "Fix-All". It's like a very fast drying, much harder plaster. Comes in a powder, you mix in water, and use quick! Sets in about 8-10 minutes, and hardens in around 30 minutes. Hardens to a firmness of cement, doesn't shrink, and doesn't wet your wood at all.
    Great stuff for plugging small holes and gouges, leveling panels, or patching broken walkways!

    Should be! Fun stuff to work with. I've used it in many a different app, from filling holes in cabinets, to leveling countertop surfaces for laminating, to patching the cement in my garage... [​IMG] Nice universal stuff!
