Anyone who works in the car business knows that smell. This stuff smells exactly like Bondo. Soon as I opened the top, I was brought back to the days of shaving Bondo on cars. This stuff works awesome. Hardens really really solid and sands easily. Using a small putty knife, it spreads easy as well. I would recommend to anyone needs a wood filler. Forget the little tubes, use this and you won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DIYguy This stuff rocks
I used several cans of this is replace a rotted exterior threshold and the bottom stiles of an exterior french door. I basically rebuilt the door with this stuff.
mixed with hardener supplied in small batches, was able to be molded in about 10 minutes, dried rock hard in 30 minutes, and was sanded and painted all in same day
this was no small hole folks - this door was in severe disrepair, and I tried this as a last resort for an elderly neighbor who had not noticed the level of damage upstairs for years

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JamesC QUICK FIX, BUT FUMES ARE NOXIOUS
I had a few window sills with rot that extended further back than just the face/trim. After digging out the rotted wood, I cracked open the Minwax wood filler. The noxious fumes are the first thing that hit you, so wear a mask designed to block fumes and use in a welll-ventilated area. If you've ever been around an auto body shop, you'll immediately recogize the odor as Bondo, a filler used in the auto body industry. This is the same product, branded as Minwax, with a white hardener instead of red or blue that typically comes w/ the Bondo branded product. When working with this product, I highly recommend that you wear latex gloves and mix in a paper plate or something you won't mind throwing away afterwards. A plastic spatula or spreader works well to mix and apply the product, but you can also use a paint stirrer. Mix the wood filler (which is peanut butter like consistency) and a small amount of hardener thoroughly. i like to put a small bead of hardender off to the side of the filler so it won't react until I'm ready to mix. Mixing time counts as drying time, so mix the hardender and filler fast, then work quickly to repair the area. Within 2 mins, the product is starts to set up and within 4 mins is too hard to work with, so toss it and mix more if needed. If you want more work time, use less hardender. Only mix what you can work with, and several light coats are better than one heavy one. Once dry, you can sand the material w/ wet or dry sandpaper, or shave w/ a rasp if you need to shape it. Aside from the smell, it's a good product, and if you finesse it, you are careful and apply sparingly, won't have alot of sanding to do.

Used this product to repair some major rot in my window sills and house trim molding this spring. Product worked great. Easy to use and best of all it set up quickly so I could finish the repair and repaint it in a few hours. My local Home Depot no longer carries this great product. They should restock this product in the stores.

Great stuff. I let my outside window sills go bad. Mix it up, apply it, sand it and prime it. You canât tell it was repaired. But half way through the project Home Depot drops stocking this. Elmerâs wood filler Max (not an epoxy product) is too new to trust yet. As for the smell, itâs not that bad used outdoors.
