Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TXshopper Worthless product
Opened can (was stored upside down per instructions) and began to stir. Immediately a LARGE air bubble in the center of the can collapsed, revealing the can to be about 1/4 to 1/3 (at most) full of product.. Stirred for several minutes then attempted to use as wood filler. Product seemed dried out and gritty. Did not work well filling the hole in the wood, was very difficult to work with a putty knife and get a smooth surface. Furthermore despite the can saying it dries hard in 15 minutes, after 45 minutes it was still as pliable as when I started. Had to dig it all out and am headed back to Home Depot for some other brand of wood filler (will try minwax this time).

Today I bought a tube of this to use to fill some cracks in my deck. As I squeezed the tube, it basically blew up in my hand. It was of no use. I bought the same product about a month ago and it was fine. A year or so ago, I tried the same product in a can. It was dry off the shelf. Years ago, this was a reliable product. Not so much so now it seems. You also used to be able to get, if I recall correctly, a decent sized tube of the product. All I can find now is around 2 oz tubes.

This stuff is great. The people who are saying that it eats paint don't know what they are doing.
This can be thinned with lacquer thinner/acetone, so of course it will not go well if it goes on top of an incompatible base. This is made for applying to raw wood and it works extremely well for that, dries very quickly (remember that acetone is fairly fast to evaporate). Once cured/dried can be finished with any type of paint...basically you treat it like wood once dry. Overall, great product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HLB Not workable at all
This product is completely unworkable from the minute you open the can. I stirred it, got some on my putty knife, and by the time I was ready to spread it (mere seconds later), it had dried and gone grainy. I had as much dry up and fall to the floor as what I was able to get in the space I needed filled. I'm throwing away the remainder. Also, it smelled up the house for a whole day with a strong chemical odor.

The dap can of wood filler states "looks & acts like real wood & can be stained" WRONG.

This is an excellent wood filler. It is not always easy to apply; skill is needed to get things right. But once you get "up the learning curve", you can get good results by using this product.
It may take more than one application. When I need to fill big holes, I will fill the hole, and let it dry for a day. Then, I will sand the surface and apply a second coat (sometimes, a third coat may be needed).
I thin the stuff with a LITTLE acetone. Just pour in a little acetone and stir. Thinning may be required when a thin coat of the product is required (like when applying the second - or third - coat mentioned above),
Again, you must be patient. Practice makes better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Edward Dissolves Latex
I was going to use this to fill finishing nail holes and corners in door casings. Like a lot of people do with new construction, I primed and painted the trim and casings before I put them up, intending to fill and paint the holes later. This stuff eats paint and primer. It makes latex into a tacky, gummy mess and then the finish rubs right off. I was using a good acrylic latex paint and a thick wood primer. I also tested it on some pre-primed MDF trim. It took the primer right off and started breaking down the MDF layer. This is by far the worst wood filler I've ever used, and I can't think of any reason I'd ever elect to use it over a cheaper, less caustic wood filler like Elmer's.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nuki Sticks to everything except the wood.
So I followed the directions. Stored it upside down until use. Popped the top and stirred it up. Cleaned the surface I was going to use this on. This stuff stuck to everything EXCEPT the wood I was trying to apply it to and it dried just way to fast to be of any use. Most of this ended up on the floor because it was drying before I could even get it into the nail holes and wood imperfections. It dried on my applicator before it filled the gaps. Unreal. I'll give it an A for fast drying time, but for the rest, an F. Save your money, try a different product.
