    Wood Hardener

    Ever use it? I need to get some and then I will post what I am going to do with it. I am not able to find the liquid like water liquid but a 2 part which is thick and thins out with acetone. I am thinking that a diluted mixture of 30% ace to 70% hardener will work.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Back in my boating days we used a product called "Get Rot" for repairing wood. It was the thin stuff but when it dried the wood would be as hard as can be.

    Sounds like what some turners call an epoxy cocktail. Regular ol' 2-part epoxy thinned with DNA until it's the consistency of milk. It's used for hardening punky wood.

    I have used Minwax Wood Hardner with very good results.

    Rob your funny, there are many things I do not know. My son comes up with stuff every week that amazes me on repairs. I tough him well. He taken what I tough him to a higher level.
    If I can in here with everytime I have a question I would never get any work done. Mostly I work through them and figure um out.

    There was a product at Lowes that I got, Elmers, I think. Brushed on a "Stabilizer" then when it dried you troweled on a filler and allowed to harden and shape similar to "Bondo" Sanded and painted and a compitant repair of rotten porch columns. Bunch of years ago and still a good repair.

    Bill a product like that works well for what it is intended to do. I've seen bondo shed paint with 6 months.
