For years I have always had Durhams on hand for quick fixes. Works great on dry rotted door thresholds. Can be used for many applications. Repairs to crafts and moldings.

Step 1: Supplies

Durhams water putty available at hardware and big box stores. e.g. Lowe's.

Putty knife

Water

Mixing container.

Also sand paper

Step 2: Mix It Up and Apply

It can be mixed thin or thick as plaster patch. I like a syrup consistency for hole fills and floor leveler. Once dry, it can be sanded and painted.

Step 3: Pilot Holes Using Finish Nails.

When your in a pinch and don't have small drill bits. I use finish nails for drilling pilot holes.

Great to share tips with others.

    Great stuff but much harder than ordinary patching plaster or spackling compound. I have found it harder to sand so I try not to smear too much on. Thanks for the ible!

    Good tips! That Durham's is indeed great stuff, I've got a tub and use it quite a bit for fixing stuff.
