Repairing rotted wood is a tricky procedure. Wood-patching products that are highly resistant to water must be used. Among these products are Minwax's High Performance Wood Filler, Mr. ... Once the putty has hardened, it can be worked much like wood and smoothed or shaped with tools such as chisels, rasps and sandpaper.
It really depends on what the job the wood is currently doing. If you have studs/a rotting wall - it needs to be replaced. Really, any wood that's rotting will need to basically be replaced but, depending on the situation, it may or may not be a current emergency. Rotting trim can be patched etc. If the rot isn't throughout but the wood is just "damp" there is the chance it could be dried out by removing it from its current environment
Where is this rotten wood? Inside? Outside? Is it structural?
Hi, you should be able to fill the rotted out area with a wood filler. It will fill in the area well and when it is hardened can be smoothed out to a nice even finish. Be sure to clean out the area first of any look wood chips.
Minwax makes a wood hardener. Check with your local hardware or home improvement store for it.
Hi! I've used this and then a wood filler
Here's a product I use and works well. Keep it level where you patch, because this stuff dries hard and you don't want to have to sand or scrape excess.

Thank you so much!
Unfortunately, wood that is rotten needs to be removed and replaced. Will need more info to direct some suggestions to.
Where is the rotten wood?
Hello. Is it a structural area or cosmetic area?
We have removed wood rot on non-structural areas chiseling it out and repairing it with either Bondo or epoxy putty. If it is a larger or deep area inserting a piece of pressure-treated wood might be an option.
