Q:Can this grey filler be used for cedar color door? Will the stain look different color if this grey colored filler is used?
by|Jun 23, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Happy to help. While Rust-Oleum Varathane High Performance Wood Filler can be used to fill in imperfections or cracks and then stained, the difference in porosity in the wood and the filler can impact the color of the stain on those areas. We recommend applying a small test application to an inconspicuous area to ensure the color is what you desired. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

      Q:What is maximum thickness that can be built up in an application?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for reaching out, Chris. We recommend applying light coats of Rust-Oleum Varathane High Performance Wood Filler in light coats rather than applying heavy coats or flooding the surface. Applying too heavy of a coat may hinder the curing process of the wood filler. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

          Mix the base part well
          The base material separates which is hard to notice until you stir it and see all the oil sitting on the bottom of the can. This should probably be added to the instructions on the can based on a lot of the negative reviews. Also if you’re trying to stain it a lighter color it’s probably not going to work well for you. I needed it for a hardwood floor that is getting stained a dark color (Kona) and it is barely noticeable on my test piece. I’m confident to use it on my customer’s new oak floors.

            Does not stain well
            This is branded as “stainable” but it doesn’t stain well with light stain colors. It is very obviously gray and doesn’t match. It filled gaps,hardened, and sanded nice but doesn’t stain well

            We're happy to help, Brady. Once the Rust-Oleum Varathane Wood Filler has been applied to the repair, it should be sanded to smooth out the surface even with the rest of the wood, at which point stain should be able to penetrate the surface. We want to hear more about your experience and try to make things right with you. Please feel free to call us at 800-901-0411 to talk about this more and make sure to have the product handy!

              Messy but works well
              I used this with their wood hardener also. Needed it done, new flooring coming in. Fixed a small area of stairway skirt with old termite damage. Wasn’t practical to replace the wood. Clean out as much of the damaged wood as possible. Must work quickly, dries rather fast. It is messy. Work in thin layers and give a little time for each one to firm up. Have acetone poured and ready to clean putty knives. I gave it an hour before sanding. Used joint compound to fill in divots.

                Totally useless crumbly garbage
                I followed the directions for mixing and application. Within about 2 minutes the stuff was hard and crumbly, and the part I applied to my project was not filling properly. I took several passes at this trying to mix less at a time. Same results every time. I’ve been woodworking for over 35 years and this is just junk. I bought it because it was more expensive than the rest on the shelf and I thought that would translate into better results.

                  ruined multiple projects
                  This stuff has ruined multiple projects of mine now. It is not stainable whatsoever. I followed the instructions extremely carefully and still got horrible looking splotches all over my projects. Do not use this product.

                    Unusable product
                    Based upon previous poor ratings, I performed a test of the product before using on my job. As directed, I VERY accurately measured out 1/16 teaspoon of the catalyst and 3 teaspoons of the wood filler (the 1:50 ratio specified on the can label). A timer was started. The outdoor temperature was 57* F, the sky was very cloudy, and the test was performed in the shade away for the sun. The mixture was thoroughly mixed for two minutes. First, the wood filler is too thin and soft to fill a large vertical defect in lumber. I think it will slump and slowly fall out. It is not stiff enough to stay put in a significant hole - only a narrow crack. Second, at seven minutes the wood filler suddenly seized up w/in seconds and turned solid and chunky. The instructions note a 15 minute work time. This product was a total failure and unusable. Do not buy, IMO.

                      Soul crusher!
                      This product is total garbage in a can. This product completely ruined my day. As Someone Who is new to home repair, it has shaken my confidence to The core. I tried to mix according to the instructions, but it was impossible to get the right mixing ratio. I mixed in the lid as suggested on the can, but it says not to mix what can’t use in 15 mins. It dried in about a minute and a half and it was a total clumpy mess. This product is BAD!!!!!’

                        It dries real grainy. Not like Bondo filler but you were out and I needed it the day I bought it, as I was out of Bondo filler. Harder to sand out too.

                        Garbage
                        They don't put enough solvent into it, so no matter how you mix it, it never gets creamy enough to work smooth. Since Home Depot doesn't carry the old MinWax variety, I guess I'll have to make my entire purchase at that other box store whenever I (also) need any wood filler.
