Made from genuine wood flour, these fillers closely emulate the properties of real wood. They can be stained, sawed, drilled, sanded, planed and nailed, just like the real thing. They show no noticeable signs of shrinking or cracking, so you'll only have to apply it once for a smooth repair. It spreads smoothly and evenly, and sinks into gaps. No mixing is required, and it dries in only 15 minutes. Suitable for interior or exterior use. Available in 10 colors.

Instructions for use:
  • Match wood filler color to unfinished wood. Always test filler, stain and finish combination on small area
  • Press wood filler into defect
  • When dry, sand flush with surrounding surfaces
  • Sand and finish after approximately 15 minutes
  • Use Famowood Solvent (#54684, sold separately) for cleanup
  • Over time, the filler in the can may thicken. Use Famowood Solvent (#54684, sold separately) to restore wood filler to its original consistency
  • Must be shipped within 48 Contiguous United States.

prevent drying and reconstitute
Best filler I have encountered in terms of accepting stain. The only drawback is the rate at which it dries out in the can. I'm the type of person who likes to keep things until they are completely used (instead of throwing away and buying new). From the reading I've done, if the product begins to harden in the can, the best way to reconstitute it is to add some M.E.K. (Methyl Ethyl Ketone). It won't dry out as quickly as acetone. If you can't find MEK, then lacquer thinner is a good 2nd choice.

Not much to say - it'a a wood filler, and it filled wood very nicely. Dries pretty quickly, easy to sand. Not much more you could ask.

Works well
You have to work quickly since the solvent is acetone and it evaporates quickly. However, once it is in place, it does dry quickly allowing you to work it within a hour or so. It took stain really well. Could not see it after staining.

I have been searching for some time now for a wood filler that really works. I recently finished a King size cherry bed frame and I had a few minor blemishes that needed to be filled in. I was under a deadline and had to go with what was available at the big box stores (not completely satisfied). I was recently listening to a previous episode of wood talk and this product was recommended, after reading the reviews and seeing the price I decided why not give it a try.

I may need to fill in a section of a guitar body made of alder and stain ? how will this receive the stain versus the wood ?
Will M on Feb 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: In my use of this and others it does not stain like the surrounding wood. It appears lighter. I have not found one that matches the wood I am filling. The closest I have come is using the saw dust of the piece I am working on with a little glue to fill with and this doesn't work that well either
When staining should I buy the color I want to stain or the type of wood it is?
Clay C on Oct 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Get the right kind of wood. I've always had trouble getting the results I am happy with by staining. You can't make pine look like walnut. This is a great product. Get the closest color. I keep 3 different colors on hand. If it starts to dry out, add a little acetone. Dan

Richard F on Oct 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use the Famowood Wood Fillers when ever I do not make my own(about 50%). They are a good filler, I would try it in an inconspicuous spot and see how it does. Sometimes another color works like Alder. You can also try thinning the filler with wood filler solvent to thin it a bit. Good luck

I will attempt to fill parts of knot holes in new pressure treated decking. After that I plan to either stain the decking with a light stain or some type of deck treatment. Which of your products would you recommend and what short falls may occur?
Patrick L on Jun 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It may not weather well. It generally works best when used with a top coat of some kind to seal the wood from the atmosphere. Being that it will be used on exterior (I'm assuning) decking it will be subject to harsh weather and may not last very long. Colored urethane caulk could also be used as an alternative.
Is this product moldable? I need to repair a cabinet corner my dog chewed off. Thanks.
Gerri G on Dec 11, 2016

I am building a console table using oak. My oak is 14 inches wide and 2 inches thick but I need it to be 1.5 inches thick. The only way to do this is to cut the piece in half then rip each piece to give me the 1.5inches thick pieces. Then I will have to join the two pieces again to give me the 14 inch wide table top. Will this wood filler work to cover the seam that will be downy he middle? Every time I use wood filler, it is very visible after I stain. Since i'm using an expensive wood, I don't want to mess it up.
Thanks!
Aicha S on Oct 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Me personally I would plane the item down to 1.5" on a planer. A lot of them only go to 13" wide, but I would try a local hardwood store, usually they have the equipment there and will do it for you for a few bucks. If you have to do it your way, I would suggest applying wood glue in the seam and sanding the area so the sawdust get into the seam and let that dry and sand the area again to remove any glue residue. Famowood is the best filler out there by far, but no wood filler matches the exact wood your using. The same species wood comes in a variety of different shades, thats why its best to use the sawdust from the workpiece your using.
What advantages would there be for choosing the Latex based filler or the solvent based filler? Is there a performance difference?
Jack M on Apr 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I strongly prefer solvent based as it dries quickly. Can get on with project with little down time.
Can Famowood be used to fill large voids in vertical surfaces? I have a historic house that has termite damage to the 8” baseboards on a corner. About 3/4 of an inch on both sides of the corner need to be rebuilt. Planning to finish with an oil stain and poly. Is Famowood the best choice! Thanks!
Chatty C on Jan 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have used Famowood for smaller repairs. For structural repairs of areas that large, I recommend that you buy the 2-part epoxy (which Rockler sells in soft plastic tubes) that will take stain, and then add a drop or two of concentrated wood dye (also sold by Rockler) to the epoxy mixture when you squeeze it out of the tubes to mix it. I have used this epoxy to repair deep gouges and cracks in a wood floor that I re-stained with dark walnut and then varnished. An epoxy repair of this type, with tinted epoxy, will not "accept" any significant additional stain, so you will need to test the tinting to get the desired color.

I have a gun stock that has a small chip next to the butt plate. Would thie appropriate color of this product be advisable to use to fill the chip? Would this product accept any additional staining, graining, and finish? Thanks!
M W on Apr 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I use this on my redesigned furniture. The truth is I have never been a to get it to accept stain so as not to stand out. I have not found one yet that will. I have had my best results when I use the saw dust from a the project mixed with glue a and even then it is only 75 percent acceptable.Enter
Is this food safe once it fully dries?
Christopher F on Mar 13, 2017

I have a 3/16th crack in my farmhouse table going the entire length. The table is stained and lacquered. Is this product suitable for filling the crack?
John C on Feb 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but you will probably have to sand [with 0000 paper] the rest of the table as well, carefully tint the filler [you can use water based tints] and re-lacquer.
I have a gouge in my oak table top. Will Famowood hold in small narrow channel? It is about half the circumference of a dime. Also, the stain in my table is honey oak. Famowood comes in colors but it says it is stainable. Is there one particular color I should use? Or, just choose the closest to my project?
Tom R on Feb 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used famowood a lot . I would put a couple of coats on. Sand it smooth. Try getting the stain closer to the wood. White or red oak.
I have an old poplar wooden bowl with a 4" section of insect damage that was really "fluffing up" . I stabilized with a wood petrifier and would like to fill in the almost quarter inch depression.

Can this stuff be blacked as such with a torch, rubbed with charcoal

Can this be used to patch a chip in a maple guitar neck....... has anyone done this?
Bob M on Jul 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Bob, if at all possible and especially on the edge of a fret board or at the tuners use a piece of hard maple with Titebond two. If out in the field or contoured section of neck it will work well but sand area to get good bond and fill. Too match color that you can mix with Famowood use Transtint always available at the Rockler store.
