How to Repair Wood Damage - part 2








So when patching wood, you would use a putty knife, and I like to use the plastic painting cup inserts as shown above to mix up the exterior wood filler. The reason I use plastic painting cup inserts is because you can crush up the putty (if it is water putty) just by gently squeezing the plastic insert after the putty is dry and then reusing the plastic insert, as shown. Of course you can use all kinds of wood repair products for wood repair; There's epoxy wood fillers, there's water putty, even bondo. I use water putty because is sands well. All that matters is that whatever you use is primed and painted well so it doesn't absorb moisture.
