  • Quickwood?

    ???I have been told by several people that the only good wood filler out there now is Quickwood and if memory serves me correctly, it was a Minwax product. Well I can't find the stuff anywhere here (Menards, Home Depot, Walmart, etc). Does anyone know of this product and where it can be found?

        Pam, there are other wood fillers that do quite nice a job, also.

        I've used plain old Elmer's water based wood filler sucessfully on a number of projects. It is easy to work with, has an extremely low toxicity level, cleans up with plain water and can be smoothed into fillets with a wet finger and small brush.

        I've also used the store brand two part epoxy wood fillers from Ace Hardware and True Value for a harder material. These come in a single tube and you just cut off the amount you need and knead the two colors together into a uniform tan shade. it smooths in a little stiffer than the Elmers, but gives a really solid fill. They make several different types; plumbers puty, wood worker's putty and a metal based filler. JB Weld is a similar metal epoxy, but I wouldn't recomend that for carving, as it hardens to a steel like material that can be drilled, machined or filed.

        This isn't to put down the Quickwood, as I have heard it is an excellent product. Just that there are others around that work very well.

          If you have a lee valley near you they carry quickwood.

          Have used it for a number of years (2) and wouldn't go back to anything else.

            They say great minds think alike. I wanted to order the ones you sent me to try. I’ll be placing an order over the week-end for the #3 double skip and others. Bruce’s free tickets to Dover this week-end for the races may just cost him for leaving me here by myself for 3 days! And I got them in 2...

            I re-created a couple of signs that are on the front of our Church. Totally rotted, fortunately the text was literally stuck to the glass and there was a historical paper copy of what was on them. In this case it did not need to be wood so I made the sign part on PVC and used a Cricut to create the...
