1/4 round molding

just installed some that will be stained soon. Problem is, the corners are not square. I made some adjustments and got them just about right, but there are still a few small (1/16") gaps. If I am staining them, what can i use to fix these gaps and where the nails are??? Thanks for your time!!!

They sell little jars of colored putty. May take 2 different colors to get the right shade.

Minwax sells wax pens that are available in various colors to match your stain. You can use it on the nail holes and joints.

I use the colored putty that Marksr mentioned. You apply it after the wood has been stained and sealed with either sanding sealer or your first coat of finish. Then, after the nail holes and cracks have been filled with the putty, you put on your last coat of polyurethane (or whatever finish you're using.)
