Is this wood filler sandable when it dries? Can one use a stain over the wood filler without it showing or bleeding through?

Repairing some gouges and scratches on the exterior and interior of my front door before painting the exterior and restaining the interior of said door. I'm also covering some screws and nail holes on my staircase railing before restaining it.

Average time before painting?

Average time before painting?
Asked by: jckd
Depending on temperature and humidity, DAP PLASTIC WOOD-X Wood Filler with DryDex Dry Time Indicator can be painted 2 to 6 hours in shallow fills up to 1/8”; up to 36 hours in deep fills ¼” and over. As is common with water based formulas, warmer temperatures and dryer conditions aid in faster drying.

Plastic Wood-X 5.5 oz. All-Purpose Wood Filler is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 93.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this product! It doesn't bind to the wood. Six months ago, after carefully following the directions, I used fresh DAP Plastic Wood-X to fill holes, caused by woodpeckers, in the cedar railing of my outdoor deck. The product dried okay and I was able to sand it a few days later. My plan was to stain the patches and cedar railing in the Sprint. Well now it's Spring, and the snow has melted here in Western NY, and I've sadly discovered that the Wood-X patches have absorbed moisture softened: I can stick my fingernails right into the patches and also easily scrape them off the wood railing with a putty knife. I now need to remove all my work of six months ago, then refill the gouges with another product, prior to staining the railing. I've always found DAP products to be excellent in the past--until this time. Very disappointing. The product is absolutely no good for outdoor use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daps works again! I was not aware of Dap's plastic latex wood filler, but I tried it for the first time on a small wooden table that had obtained a couple dents and cracks on the top of the table. After cleaning the top, I applied the filler to the couple holes in the table and let it dry overnight. The next day I sanded and repainted the top. The product worked well, easy to apply with easily spreading the filler. Afterwards the table top had a smooth surface that you could not tell that it previously had holes in it. I'm happy with the results and the kids happy that the holes are gone on the table. If I'm in need of a wood filler, I would buy this product again and would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again and again I used this product on a windowsill in my Daughters bedroom and it worked great! One of our dogs had chewed the wood away from the sill in an area about the size of 2"w x 1/2"d x 3/8"t. After a rough sand to remove splinters, I carefully tapped in a few small nails into the sill in the chewed area- equally spaced. Thus like "pinning" that area to provide some extra support for plastic filler material. I then used this product to fill the area making it slightly thicker than the adjoining wooden sill. After setting up/drying completely I sanded the filler down to form it to the original sill shape. Finally, I painted the sill and it looked great! No one would ever know that it had been repaired. I will definitely buy this product again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality product but not friendly to paint I had a unique situation. My dog peed at bottom of couple of door frames causing the door frame bottom portion to popped out and created a hole. We were in the mood to change the door frame but finally came to know about this product. First I took off the uneven wood with the help of a chisel then I applied the product. Waited for couple of days to dry out then sanded to finish. Color was not matching and tried painting it, but somehow color were not sticking to it. Otherwise liked the product. Took some time to dry off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plastic Wood Worked Great on Repairs I used the Dap Plastic wood to repair an old antique wooden plant stand which had issues with cracking, separation and wood rot. I dug out the rot and used the new filler to fill the holes and separation cracks. It dried and sanded great. It was very easy to use and clean up afterwards. I also used it to fill in nail holes on trim board. I just filled and painted and it looks great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This stuff works well I had an outdoor Adirondack chair that had been sitting outside and needed repainting. I used this filler on the small cracks and it worked great. Once dry, I was able to sand it and paint it, leaving a smooth finish. I wasn't aware of this particular wood product before, but I'd use it again if I had the need. I'd recommend it to others as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product, DAP Plastic Wood 8oz, meets it's claims. I am an Electrician by trade. (i.e. Wood Butcher) so this product, Plastic Wood, was very helpful for me to make my Door Frame and Door hanging job look more professional. Easy to use with the tools I had in my handyman tool box.
