+1 on this method. Though I've used Acraglas Gel and Devcon Steel Epoxy for bedding jobs, the clear epoxy and sawdust method works great for correcting relatively minor glitches. Whenever sanding stocks, I always corral some of the finer particles of sawdust and save it in child-proof prescription bottles (child-proof caps prevent a mess if the bottle gets knocked over). It's easy enough to test mix in small batches, and once hardened easily sanded to shape. True, the patch won't have any grain, but it'll be pretty much the same color as the rest of the stock.
