    Question Cracked Front Door

    We have what appears to be the original front door in our 1802 Colonial. The wood has cracked in a few places so we'd like to repair it before winter hits. Recently on TOH - Bedford project they did a similar repair using an epoxy. I can't find what kind of epoxy. They said it was flexible which most of the products I see do not mention.

    Does anyone know what this epoxy product is? Or is there some other repair material that might work the same or better?

    Thanks!

    actually you can only use the minwax epoxy wood filler if the door is painted. if it's stained you'll have to use a matching wood filler.

    It is painted so that shouldn't be a problem. Thanks for the help!

    What's Minwax "epoxy" wood filler? I only know of the polyester resin (smells like bondo) type?
    If you want a quality repair, use Advanced Restoration Technology's gel epoxy. Always stays flexible, unlike bondo, will hold under shrinkage.

    You could also look into the Abatron wood repair system:
