You can prime the hole first with the LiquidWood and then fill with WoodEpox. WoodEpox is an off white in color. It accepts a stain on the surface but the stain does not soak into it like a regular piece of wood. You could tint the WoodEpox with a dry powdered pigment and then stain the surface to try and get closer match.
WoodEpox bonds to anything except for plastic.
The WoodEpox will accept a stain, but it will not absorb into it like a regular piece of wood. A solid stain will cover the WoodEpox best.
Those numbers indicate the batch date, 10/19/20. The WoodEpox has at least a 1 years shelf life, if not longer, as long as it's been stored properly (room temps with lids sealed tightly). The product might be fine. I would suggest mixing a small amount of Part A & Part B together, let it sit to see if it cures. If it does, the product should be fine to use.

I’m using WoodEpox to fill cracks and a couple divots in a turned spalted wood bowl, made of a somewhat soft wood. It works beautifully except, after sanding away the cured excess around the cracks, there is visible darkening where the putty was and a bit beyond. It’s almost like an oily residue. I’m going to wait to see if it goes away on its own but would like to know if Abaton can offer any insight as to what this is. (Since it’s spalted wood I doubt if anyone will ever notice, but as of now I am hesitant to use WoodEpox on clear wood until I know more about it.)

After trying numerous big box store brands of filler and some alternatives online, I finally took the time to do some research and came upon this product. Finally a filler that does the job. We restored an old Victorian in South Louisiana, and let’s just say the maintenance work continues. Absolutely an amazing product.

I first used Wood Epox back in 1993 when I was restoring my 1903 Victorian commercial building. The building was brick and stone construction but had some wood trim and sills around its 45 windows. I used this to repair rotted sills and reclaim trim, etc. This stuff never failed and created lightweight permanent bonds that could be cut, routed, drilled, nailed, etc. Product can be thinned to skim surfaces or just use as putty and press in place and it will bond to and remaining wood. I always tell people to use this as it is AMAZING!

This has to be one of the greatest finds in my DIY Home Maintenance Career!!! Very easy to use and get the mix ratios right so the product hardens correctly. I’m repairing insect and rot damage on the exterior of my house. Southern California is NOT friendly to exterior wood!!!

First time user of Wood Epox. Patching up some damage on wooden deck. I love this stuff! So easy to use. Love it so much that I want to find other places to use it. By the way, I am a 73 year old woman. Go Wood Epox!

Marvelous product! Used for many years with terrific results.
Regarding Jack’s comments above: I mix two part WoodEpox in my hands like clay using latex gloves. Sounds messy but it isn’t at all. Far faster and more thorough than attempting to mix with a putty knife.
Have learned that WoodEpox shapes and spreads best if combined with a bit of Liquid Wood. Experience will indicate how much to get a good consistency that spreads well but won’t sag. Typically also coat the surface/defect to be filled with Liquid Wood immediately prior to applying Wood Epox. Can’t really verify but assume the Liquid Wood soaks into the repair greatly strengthening the bond.
My only question is in many cases I’m repairing cracks in a wood grained surface. Tried several methods but haven’t figured out how to simulate wood grain in the repair. When sanded the repair is even more prominent.
Again; many thanks for a great product.
The WoodEpox should be kneaded together until it’s one uniform consistant color. You can use the LiquidWood as a primer to the WoodEpox to assist you with adhesion.
I have 50 years of experience working with wood as a contractor. This product is very difficult to mix up and after going through a lengthy mixing process would not stick to the raw wood. I definitely would not recommend it.
Amazing product! I rarely write reviews, but this stuff is great!
Yes, you can use our LiquidWood and WoodEpox to make your repair.
I have legs to an antique buffet where the blocks at the top that connect to the buffet via tongue and groove have cracked and or fallen apart. There are 8 legs, about half the blocks are messed up. I want to keep the legs, rather not cut the square blocks off the top of the legs, and would rather repair with some sort of glue or epoxy. I have the clamps. Would this product be suitable or joining and/or filling in to pieces of a weight bearing leg? The buffet is probably only 100ish lbs, and has 8 legs.

I live in New Orleans where wood rot , termite damage repair is a hobby. I live in a 120 year old house and have used the WoodEpoxy with the LiquidWood products on rotted columns , termite damaged cypress doors and other projects. All with awesome results.
You can use LiquidWood as an adhesive if you’d like, as long as you clamp it together until it cures. WoodEpox will also bond to both pieces of wood. We have adhesive products. The Epotron 5 may be a good product for your application.

Can you glue exterior wood together such as using wood glue using your wood epoxy

I do remounts of Deer antlers. WoodEpox is excellent for filling the void under the skull cap. LOVE IT ! However, your online price is DOUBLE what I pay at my local Builders Supply store. I will look for other uses for WoodEpox.
I have used WoodEpox for over 5 years and is my go to for
All of my patching needs. The fact that it is load-bearing
allows me to use it on outdoor stair stringers at the point of
connection to the landing.

I just used the WoodEpox today and I can’t tell you how impressed I was with it. We have a 1906 home on the Historic Register and have been very conscientious about retaining the original character. There were decorative features on the railing of our front porch that had deteriorated through the years and I was able to mold the damaged parts with this wonderful product with ease. It was so easy to work with and turned out looking like new. Once they are painted I think it would be difficult to pick pick out which ones were repaired. One of them was almost half gone and it turned out great. Worth every penny and I would highly recommend this product.

It’s what I am looking for

Works well. After 5 years, repairs are still solid. I would almost always use the solid filler after using the liquid for consolidation. I even repaired a largish crack across a panel in an old screen door (two halves completely separated) that has held the pieces together for 4 years.

I love this product. I bought both the Wood Epox and the Liquid Wood about 20 years ago, and have used these products very successfully in restoration projects. The shelf life is amazing! Still using the original batch. Like all two part epoxies, you have to be careful to keep tools separate when handling the A & B products. Best product I have every used for wood repair, hands down.

I’ve used Wood Restoration Kits with LiquidWood and WoodEpox on several jobs. In one case I restored a window sash where the bottom was almost completely rotted out. In another case I restored the bottom of some fluted columns that had rotted out. You can’t tell the difference between the repair and the original and after 5 and 15 years (respectively) the repairs are holding up. Another thing, the shelf life is decent as along as you don’t mix the components. So, you can store the product for a while and use it on several jobs.

The wood epoxy works great when used in conjunction with the Liquid Wood. I have used a competitors wood filler that I got at Home Depot and it did not even begin to compare with Abatron. The Wood Epoxy does everything the information sheet claims it will do. It is extremely hard once it reaches full hardness, it sands easily, it takes paint primer very well and it does not shrink or crack. The key is proper preparation of the material that is damaged and following the instructions. The product may seem a little expensive, but it goes a long way and is worth every penny.

Love both the liquid and putty. This is a GREAT product and easy to work with. Once you learn how the materials behave, you can reconstruct complex profiles to repair damaged molding and other details; much cheaper than buying molder blades for small section repair!

Wood Epox is the only wood replacement system that provides strength, flexibility, durability and easy sanding/drilling.
