Exterior Woodwork Presentation Followup

Woodwork like this can be brought back and will last another 100 yrs
Just want to extend a thanks to those who attended, you were a great group to work with on this decidedly un-fun, but important, topic. A special thanks to Abatron for supplying a wood restoration kit for use at this presentation. As usual here is my follow up to questions that came up at the workshop.

Probably number one was an alternative to the professional grade Abatron products. I only have experience with these products from Minwax, which have held up fine for the past 10 yrs where I have put them to use, for smaller cracks and voids. For a filler/putty the Minwax High Performance Wood Filler works but is sticker and harder to work with. For a consolidant/wood hardener the Minwax High Performance Wood Hardener does work. Both are available at local home stores.

Here's a link to some thoughts on these products from Historic HomeWorks, they are near the end of the page, just above the heading "Opinion".

Comments and questions are always welcome.
