    Spackling is soft. I suggest you use a wood putty.

      I thought about that. My wood putty always gets hard. I don't use it much so it gets old, and even with the cover tight, it gets hard. I was also wondering about using chalk paint, maybe even using the powder using in the chalk paint and mix it with caulk as it stick to everything.

    I get it on the wood putty. Next time buy one of these:


    Powdered- mix it in tiny batches, when you need it. Keep the opened box in a zip lock baggie, just like pancake mix, lol.


    Epoxy Stick- it’s a two part epoxy in one stick- like a tootsie roll with a filling. Slice off what you want, kneed it like playdough and it can be sanded, drilled or whatever when dry.
