Shoutout for Timbermate

I just wanted to give a shoutout about a new product I just tried. I picked up a small container of timbermate at the hardwood store a few months ago and just got around to trying it today. Great stuff, easily the best wood filler I have tried. Didn't shrink, dried in less than 30 min, sanded very easy, and my nail holes, and joints looked perfect. It kind of pricey but good stuff.

Yeah, its pretty good stuff. One of the few wood fillers that takes a stain okayish. Fortunately, it comes in loads of colors too. Only bad part is the smell, I can't stand it. Its even worse if you use it on red oak

I need cheaper hobby

Yeah it has a strange smell but I didn't think it was bad. The only only thing I could relate it to was a horse barn, like a mixture of hay and horses. My mother has always owned horses and it reminded me of that.

I think it smells kind of like phenol resin

Guess the smells pretty subjective. I don't find it completely unpleasant, but its incredibly strong. Mixed with red oak though, it smells like cat pee and nightmares. Smoked myself put of the shop first time I used it doing that!

Like the product, don't care for the smell either, going by memory but I think you can thin it with water...

Maybe that's what it's made from. Horse ----! Ha.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

That is the one thing I like about it, if it dries completely out you can mix it back up with water, and it has a lot of applications it can be used as a grain filler too. On a few pens I turned I would take a pretty open grained wood like Padauk and fill the pores with the white, then finish it, looked pretty spiffy

But their QC is some what lacking, I was running low on cherry so I ordered more, there was a very visible difference in the filler, but it worked out anyway
