If you’re filling holes in kitchen unit doors, especially with grain effect: Use this tip to stop excessive filler getting into grain and texture.

Once filler is applied, rub down to depth of masking this also protects surrounding texture/grain, then remove tape and finish.

Use a stencil cutting knife or 9mmsnap off blade to replicate grain in the filler, this takes your eye away from it, if its not being covered over by another handle.
