I have a cedar glass sliding door that my dog has eaten a section away. l also have 2 cedar windows with rot on sills and corner. All damage will take quite a bit of filling, l was thinking the sculpt wood putty looks easy to work with, l saw a DIY where they used the putty it looked great. What products do l need to do both of these jobs? any help anyone can give me would be helpful. First time repairer Thankyou
We used it, along with the liquidy RotFix to repair the roof of a railway car, especially the curved ends. We removed the rotted wood, poured in the liquid stuff to stabilize the remaining material, then filled the cavities with the Sculptwood. It was easy to file, sand to shape and will last for years. It will not be stainable but holds paint well. Get the surfaces flat on a table, build it up in layers. Good luck, we recommend this product.Ross Robinson
System Three SculpWood is the perfect product to used for these repairs. It takes at least two days to follow all the steps and you cannot leave out the first step using the two-part liquid gardner. The putty will easily fill in small cracks or big spaces and hardens without shrinking. I have used in on greenhouse frame repairs and on house window frames and door cracks and it has held up beautifully. I do recommend using the extra initial step of inserting boron rods if you anticipate additional moisture. The boron rods come in different sizes and are not included in the kit. Time consuming but you don't want the rot to reappear.
You definitely need the Rot Fix to fill the pores of the rotted wood. RotFix is almost watery in consistency. After that, you have to apply the SculpWood to restore the original shape. The SculpWood has to be applied within a certain interval after the Rot Fix or else it will not bond. I would apply the RotFix on the wood that the dog chewed as well; it will be a great "primer".
Hi Harold, thankyou for your help. l have tried to order Sculpt Wood Putty 2qt &Rot Fix Epoxy 1.5 it won't tell me how much the shipping is? Do you deliver to Australia?l'm sorry to be a bother, l'm not very experienced with a computer, this is the first time l have tried to buy something. Can l do it directly with you? Thankyou Viv
Sculpwood is ideal for your situation. Scrape and cut away all rot softened wood, I wear rubber gloves and mix by rolling and folding the globs of both parts together until all streaks of individual colors are gone. Then overfill slightly and sand after the filler sets. I usually place the majority of the filler with my fingers and smooth the surface with a putty knife. I find that slightly wetting my putty knife helps keep the filler from sticking to it, but only for the final surface of the filler.
How many steps do l have to do, to treat the rot in my cedar windows before l use the sculpt wood putty? Thankyou
How long does this take to fully cure for say a 3" x 2" deep/thick fill? There's a chunk taken out of a piece of an interior wood light box (surround) on a house we just bought. I'll need to sand & stain it to blend with existing wood. Thanks!
Thanks! Onto drywall!!
If possible try to do a dutchman repair with a piece of wood that you can stain to match. An epoxy patch of this size would most likely cure to a sandable state within 24 hours. Staining it will be a challenge. Most epoxies are recommended to be primed and painted to protect from UV light. Good luck!
It just takes a few hours whether it's deep or shallow because as an epoxy it cures by catalysis rather than drying. In fact it cures a little faster in a thick application because of the heat generated by the curing reaction. Pay attention to the instructions when mixing the product and apply it promptly before it starts to harden.
This would cure hard very quickly, sub hour. Then full cure within 8 hours. The more you use at once the higher the exotherm from the material. You can mix some stuff it in, mix more etc to fill the space if you work fast. Then the batches will cure together. This stuff sands like a dream once fully cured.
Haven't had a problem with this size of repair curing in 24 hours.
Can SculpWood be mixed with saw dust to give the appearance of wood?
You know, I bet it could. It's probably better on its own because to me, it's a perfect mixture with great properties of durability,sand ability and formability. You'd have to knead in a lot of sawdust and I'm not sure it would get wetted enough. You might as well make a sawdust ball out of regular system three epoxy and use that.
It already has a tan wood-tone color when the two components are mixed. Adding fillers might change its structural properties.
I have cornice bracket elements made of wood. I have taken them off the house as sections of the leaves of the elements are missing. I have made a mold of the complete, not damaged cornice bracket and would like a modeling material that I can press into the mold to make the missing elements. Would this product work? It needs to be ok for exterior. I also need to consolidate the existing wood because it is cracking and dry.
I have used the same process you have described in replacing both Moldings on furniture, carvings on old picture frames and replacing parts of missing wood. I have used several products over the years but Sculpwood is by far the best. Put on a pair of of latex gloves, mix it up 50/50 and work it in your hands for a few minutes, it becomes very soft and you can work it into a Mold with a little pressure. You might have to put a little Vaseline on the inside of the mold so the finish product will release. Let it dry, pull it out, sand as you need, fill as you need, prime and paint as required. You should not have any problems as it works into any wood product, from Logs on log homes, to walnut and cherry on fine furniture and antiques.

I'm a trim carpenter and have had good luck with this product. I would give it a try. I think it would work for you.
I have made a lot of missing parts from this product. it takes time to dry as compared to lets say min wax two part but it works perfect. the closest thing to wood that I have found in my painting business, and great on surface cracks such as what is found on railings. Sands perfectly and accepts all paints
I am looking for stuff to seal cracking dry rot at the tips of logs exposed at the corners of my log house. SculpWood looks like the right product. But I am concerned about its brown color. How brown it is? I would like something semi-transparent in cedar colors.
it is close to red oak color, I used it 3 years ago and it still like new. Good product, but some people complained that they cannot stain it.
William,Thank you for prompt response. Will Interlux Interstain Wood Filler Stain work better for my purpose?
Sorry, I never stained it so I have no idea.udachi!
Hi William.Thank you for Russian.I may not put my last question clear. I would consider using filler stain not on top of SculpWood but instead of it. Any comments about this option?
it drys a little darker than pine, kind of like pine wet. hard to describe color, taupe color would be my best description. it does not take stain. but you can paint it.
When the two ingredients are mixed the result is a light brown. It is not semi-transparent.
I need to fix a small south facing exterior garage window. It receives sunlight the majority of the day. Do you have any products that will hold up to hot summers and cold winters?
I have three beams that stick out past the roof line on my patio cover and I used this product about three years ago with good results and its still holding up. I live in Northern California and we have temps well into the triple digits for several weeks a year
I have used this product extensively for exterior window repairs & trim around windows. It has held up very well.
Fabulous stuff particularly if some wood is missing and needs to be filled. I typically treat the wood with some penetrating epoxy and then use the SculpWood to fill any gaps.
I've used SculpWood to fix rotting wood with good success.After hardening, sand smooth and paint with exterior paint. It should last a lifetime.
I used it to repair about a 6 inch long area on an exterior door jamb. The jamb was rotted out. Door is south west facing in GA. Temps probably over 100 many days. Full exposure to rain. Done in spring - holding up so far - no evidence of any problem with the repair. Shaped in place by facing with shipping tape covered pieces of wood - these removed easily after cure of system three.
does it adhere to older wood?
I have used the product on my house which is over 80 years old. So I can say that it works well on older wood. I hope this has helped you.
As long as you prep the wood. Remove paint, sand, and recommend using RotFix on the area in need of repair. I typically will let the RotFix dry/set for at least 10 - 15 minutes before filling in with SculpWood.
In older wood you have to get rid of the soft or decayed wood fibers, and possibly coat with a wood hardener first if the wood is still soft. That is also part of this cdomplete system. read up on it and follow all the steps and it will work great.
I have used this product many times to repair old rotted wood. All of my repairs have been successful, some are holding now for over three years. What I do is use a liquid epoxy to soak the rotted or old wood first. When it's setting up I apply the SculptWood and jam it into the setting epoxy. It may take a couple layers of SculptWood to build up what you need but it's pretty workable. I have even embedded rebar in it to strengthen a patch that took some load. In my opinion this stops the rot and allows you build up what you need for a good repair.
WARREN WILLIAMSON IV
Yes. I pretreat with smiths penetrating epoxy.
Yes, I have used SculpWood with older wood. To ensure adherence I use System 3 Rot Fix to "prime" the wood (even if there is was no rot present).I've always been
I used this stuff in the transom of a 1957 wooden Penn Yann boat and it adhered fine. So go for it.
Yes, I have used this product to repair rather than replace rotted sections on my 1884 home. The manufacturer recommends treating the area first with their 2-part liquid epoxy which is what I did.
I have 4x12 beams that stick out from under the roof I used one of those wire wheels that you put in a drill and took the wood down to solid wood before using this product. it looks great and seams to be holding up well
I my case the wood was about 21 years old and rotted. I just removed the loose material and applied the wood epoxy and it worked very well.
Yes, this product will adhere to older wood. In fact, that's is what it is made to do, as long as the old wood is free from oils and is dry.I have used this product to repair rotting wood for many years. I clean out all the old loose wood, and if necessary, I dry out the area with a hair dryer. If there are large sections to fill, I first use a polyester foam, which is waterproof, to partially fill in the void, and then apply the SculpWood.If I need to make the finished surface "Perfect", I then use a 3M product called "Bondo", which is a two part polyester body filler used on cars and can be sanded to a very smooth surface suitable for a gloss paint. Works great on rotting trim and door frames.
I have some deck rail caps which have some gouges and holes which I have to fill. Can I use this instead of an exterior Spackle?
I have use SculpWood on my exterior wood garage doors about a year ago, which had some dry rot from not being painted for too long. It works great, sticks,feel strong and hard, and has made them look like new, and paints just like wood.
Exterior spackle is easier to use.Sculpwood sets up too fast
I believe this would work great. I repaired a wood door threshold with severe cracking and gouges about a year ago using this product. I realize a year isn't very long however it has held up great so far with heavy use and weather. Good luck
Can is not May
Yes this systems works like what my Dad used to use, it was called "Plastiwood" where once dried it can be sanded smooth. This system works the same.
1st, System Three Sculpwood is like no product you have ever used before! Its actual over all coverage in # of feet all depends on how deep you have to go in cracks and crevices. Now if you are asking about how does it cover, WOW, it is malible enough to cover the smallest cracks yet has the ability to cover cracks easily 3/4 wide and 1/2 deep with no sagging during drying. We also discover it is easy to sand, and in our case it accepted oil base stain, and finish. I would highly recommend this product to any wood surface that is in sun and weather. Overall this product surprized me and I am very satisfied with the outcome! Try it once and you will be sold on this product. ChC Cross Restorations.

It comes covered in a box
Not intended to cover large areas unsupported. Will easily fill cracks, holes, depressions, etc 1/2" or less in diameter
DAVID W JAFFIN
I don't think that coverage is the proper term. When mixed it is like a stiff, moldeable putty and will fill in gaps equal to its own volume. I witnessed no shrinkage. Don't make the mistake I did. I used pieces of wood to make a form to replace parts of a windowsill. The sculpwood bonded to the form and I had to break it free.( I probably should have oiled the form first) You need to mold the best shape you can by hand and then saw, file, and sand to the final shape.It's a good product. I tried wood putty from a local hardware store and it was a disaster.
Does the epoxy accept wood stain?
Unfortunately, no you cannot add stain to this, due to the chemical make-up of the product, the stain would show in some area's and not in others. You can however try using a pigment to match the color of the wood, but I recommend a product like Interlux's "Interstain" which is a stain and filler in one, thank you.
Works well,east touse.
Repairing the roof of a railway passenger car prior to covering with rubber roofing.Lots of rot and holes to fill.System works well.
Product works as advertised.
I used the product to repair rot on my garage door jam. The product worked well.
Use the right product for the job!
This stuff is easy enough to use for minor repairs and crafts. I would NOT use it for structural purposes. I would mix my own blend of epoxy, silica, wood flour, and maybe a bit of chopped strand for structural work. Or maybe a bit of xxWeld. My wife uses this stuff for her gourd art. Be careful mixing it though. If you mix it to long it liquefies and limits its usefulness. System Three has always been very helpful when I have had problems.
Very good product
Easy to use, does job well
This product is a must have
A key part of System Three End Rot system. I have repurchased many times. Gives great finished results when used/mixed with their 2 part clear epoxy sealer to give a better workability. Product by itself is not messy to use but to get good flow and workability in many applications need to mix with their clear epoxy sealer. I would not tackle dry rot problems without this one.
My house was built in 1820 and many of the window sashes and well as window sills needed a bit of attention. SculpWood has is an amazing product. It's easy to use and sands beautifully. I never write reviews but this product is truly great. When you are able to take something that looks as though it should be ripped out and replaced with new material, and make is look new again by using sculpwood...well, needless to say I was very impressed with this stuff. I have a block of it sitting on computer.Travis
