Repairing Wooden Furniture With Bondo All Purpose Filler

repair remedies 8 hours ago
Jacque and I are always on the look out for furniture in need of a little TLC, so when we ran across this beautiful dresser/buffet, it was hard to pass up bringing it home. It had cracks, chips, and gouges...Just what we were looking for! We had used different wood fillers in repairing other pieces, but thanks to some advice from my father-in-law and the 3M AutoCare team, we learned that Bondo was an amazing alternative to ordinary wood fillers. It's got a quick cure time, it's strong, and it doesn't shrink while it cures. Take a look at our experience using Bondo All Purpose Filler to repair our Woodland Themed Dresser

    We actually used bondo on our turned porch railings. We couldn't find matching ones for replacement so we used bondo on the damaged ones. You can't tell which ones have bondo.
