Quick Tip: Repair damaged wood

Featured in Home / Tuis magazines, here's how to repair damaged wood with Alcolin QuikWood epoxy putty.


I have previously posted on using Alcolin QuikWood epoxy putty to repair damaged wood, and this recent article featured in Home / Tuis magazines shows just how easy it is to repair damaged wood.

1. Cut off a piece of Alcolin QuikWood - just enough to do the repair to the damaged area.

2. Knead the epoxy putty until it becomes a consistent colour and is soft and pliable.

GOOD TO KNOW: Have a wet cloth or sponge on hand to keep your fingers wet as you knead.

3. When the putty is soft and pliable and easy to work with, press this into the damaged area. Press down hard to bond the putty to the surface of the wood and use your thumbs to flatten out and fill the area.

4. Use a putty knife or paint scraper to shape the epoxy putty before it starts to harden.

GOOD TO KNOW: Remove any excess epoxy putty to make it easier to sand.

5. Leave the putty to harden for about an hour before sanding smooth. The natural colour of Alcolin QuikWood matches most light woods, but here's a tip if you need to add colour to the epoxy putty to match dark wood.
