This product is easy to use. The tub opens easily. There is no mixing needed. Just dip a putty knife in and paste it into the holes you want to fill.
I used it to fill some holes in hardboard that were made by drywall screws. I found I needed to wait more than 15 minutes for it to be dry enough for sanding. There is always something else to do anyway so I don’t see this as a problem.
I did some light sanding the next day with a black of sanding foam and it smoothed out well.

I used this to fill a hole that needed a stud installed .After I fill the hole and allowed it to cure I predrilled and install my screw stud. The stud is used to hold plywood window covers to protect my window from damage. I painted over and no one can tell that the hole was patched.

Very easy to use, I have used this brand and others and the nice part is that this is very easy to use, my typical application is filling nail holes in crown molding, which I have been doing a lot lately, as well, I have used it where the molding is butting up, it is very mold-able in its wet state and holds well enough that it does not sag or deform, due to gravity, when fixing very large gaps, so all in all, this is a good solid product, if there was a complaint it would be that the container needs to be a little smaller as this product tends to harden if it has been sitting around awhile, a smaller container would mean that you would use it all up the first time.

The product is of poor quality and really does not do the job. You would be better off using a good putty,
because your are paying for a premium product and are getting a low grade item.

This stuff does it's job - it fills holes. But if you stain on top of it, you will have a blotchy finish. It almost looks like girrafe skin. I learned the hard way and spent hours sanding the stain and filler off. The pro's all say to stain first, then fill your nail holes. I have used this product with paint with no issues.

This stuff is not stainable!!!!!!
if you have a large spot to fill.. larger than a finishing nail then don't use this product
because the spot you fill looks worse than leaving it unfilled or just let the nail show
this stuff is the worst , grittiest stuff i ever tried. Carpenters and hobbyist have needed a good product for fixing stained wood finishes for years now.. you would think someone has come up with a good one by now

I used this product and have used the epoxy that costs more and needs t be mixed. The epoxy works better for larger areas to fill. It is however. a little more difficult to work with. This product is better for smaller areas that can use more of a liquid product. The epoxy is sand able and dries like cement and after several years still looks like new and appears that it will last many more.

I had been using DAP Plastic wood for years and only started using Elmer's filler a year now. I've bought it both in tubes and containers and prefer the container since its easier to use with a putty knife. Its important to not leave it uncovered and just to play safe tape the cover when storing after opening. It is coarser than other fillers, but I think this is what makes it a stronger wood patch. This container I got to repair cosmetic rot in a basement stair before painting. It was pretty deep and the filler went in easily; although, I did build up the patch. The filler took sanding well and then I covered it with a coat of paint. The problem with old type wood fillers is they shrink more when dry. Elmer's wood filler didn't seem to do this as much.. I use fillers primarily for these kinds of repairs and think Elmer's is fine for this work. Its a good product, easy to work and makes a permanent fix.
