Hard as a Rock
This putty works wonderful. I use it for almost all of my projects that need to be puttied. If you mix it with a little liquid nail glue it will give you extra support. I also add paint or stain for coloring.

    This product worked surprisingly well. I used it to fix a section of roof trim which was rotten due to rain water. I could not take off the entire trim (that would require remove some tiles as well - more than I wanted to take on). So I removed all the rotten wood and used this product to patch it up (about an inch deep along the edge). I applied this product one layer at a time (a quarter inch thick) so that I could mold the edge and corner. After it dried, I sanded it smooth and painted. No one can tell it is not the original wood. This stuff hardens quickly - about 10 minutes, so one needs to mix a small patch and apply it immediately.

    Actually Works
    Ive walked past the quirky retro looking can at the store many times but finally decided to give it a try on some upcoming carpentry projects. Once you get the hang of how to mix it to the right consistency and not to make too much at one time (because it does set up rather quickly) its a perfect wood filler. I used it to fill holes left in trim from a 18ga and 15ga nailer as well as cover countersunk screw heads and other imperfections in plywood. Everything but the screw heads needed only one coat and after a light sanding and paint the finish is flawless! This putty really does not shrink and sands just like wood once set. Cant believe I just found out about this great product but will always have a can handy from now on.

      This stuff is amazing. I wish I had found it sooner. The powder should last forever and not dry out like the rest of the wood fillers out there. Much cheaper than other fillers. It is very sandable and smooth. It does accept stain well and changes color. Here is some pictures of pine with a just a satin polyurethane. It filled the knot holes well.

        I hate plastic wood. I have thrown out so many containers because they dried out, even when properly stored, I was beyond frustrated on the waste. So on my current remodel, I thought I would give this product a try. Well, I am sold! This stuff is so easy to work with and it doesn't shrink or crack! Yes, it is an added step that you have to mix it up, but this has its own benefit besides not wasting product (and money). You can make it the consistency needed for your current patch work. On the instructions, it recommends about 3 parts powder to 1 part water. I didn't have any thing to use to measure, so I just kept adding powder until I got the consistency I wanted. It was a smooth consistency that when you raised your putty knife it sat solidly. I used a coffee mug (only thing on hand) to mix it, but next time I will use a square/rectangle container to make it easier to mix and use (i.e., scrape off excess on the rim of the container). It was super easy to clean up with water.

        This is the best putty I have ever used. It's easy to use and the container allows for a long shelf life. I patched the knots in my deck and then painted it. Wow, how amazing my deck looks now.

          Perfect!
          I repaired a thumb size broken front corner of the base of an expensive statue. I made a fairly thick solution and used a putty knife to form the corner. I wiped up any excess with a damp paper towel I give it 24 hours to dry but I'm sure it didn't need that much time. The instructions do not say exactly how much time is needed due to the varying amount of water and powder used by an individual. It came out solid and smooth, I hardly needed to sand. The paint dried quickly. It's almost impossible to see the repair. In fact it all blended so well I don't even need to paint the entire base it all matches. This is a great product, easy to work with, it dried smooth and hard and painted well. I don't usually write reviews but I was so pleased I wish I could attach a photo.. It's nice to purchase an inexpensive product that actually does what it says it does.

            Not a fan of Durham's
            Regardless of how small or large a batch that I made up it hardens VERY quickly. I'd estimate that about half of the can contents was never used to do the repairs because it hardened so quicly even though I added vinegar as the directions suggested. ALSO, it is hard to get the right consistency. I'll stick with Plastic Wood brand. Not a fan......
