Structural Epoxy Wood Hardener and Consolidant for Deteriorated Wood.
Uses: LiquidWood® penetrates wood fibers and structurally hardens decayed and weathered wood permanently. Use indoors and outdoors and on both structural and decorative wood. Use to harden and restore wood on buildings, windows, columns, beams, decks, boats, furniture, artwork, and any wooden architectural elements. Use also as a primer or thinner for WoodEpox®.
Features & Benefits: LiquidWood epoxy wood consolidant is easy to use and produces permanent results. Its low viscosity allows it to penetrate deep into the wood and saturate deteriorated wood fibers prior to hardening. This eliminates the need to remove the areas that can be effectively consolidated. With LiquidWood, deteriorated wood that could crumble under finger pressure can be restored to structural, high-strength, durable, weather and insect-resistant wood. The absence of water and solvents eliminates shrinkage and enhances adhesion. It is low odor and produces virtually zero VOCs, making it safe and hazard-free in any environment. Treated wood will harden within hours, and like new wood, can easily be sawed, planed, drilled, nailed, painted, routed, and sanded.

The LiquidWood is for consolidating the rotted wood. There shouldn't be any additional rot anywhere you used the LiquidWood in that manner. I am a 74 year old woman, so please excuse my long-winded story. I started out to paint an old wicker rocker that we inherited from my brother. Apparently some repairs were attempted before. The rockers were held on with drywall screws and I discovered a little rot-damaged wood on one of the rockers. More seriously, one end of the 1 1/2 in round bentwood that forms the back of the chair and then is cut down to go into the 1in hole in the rocker was extremely rotted and it appears that someone tried to repair it with glue of some type. Amazingly, the rocker rocked well and felt stable until I took it apart. I am thinking about cutting back the bentwood to a fairly solid place, drilling a 3/4 hole for a dowel in the end of it, applying Liquid Wood to all appropriate places, and then inserting WoodEpox and a dowel into the end of the bentwood and into the rocker. Then I would use WoodEpox to build up the dowel in the visible section below the end of the bentwood to match that diameter. Do you think this would be stable enough? I realize that it would make the rocker permanently attached to the chair. I also plan to use the two products to rebuild the edge of the rocker that has some rot. I would really appreciate your opinion good or bad of the plan, and any suggestions you might have.
