Repair wood with polyester filler: Apply wood hardener and filler. To repair rotted door frame, first remove rotted wood with a 5-in-1 or other sharp tool. Then coat the rotted door frame area with wood hardener as shown. Mix polyester wood filler or Bondo wood filler and press it into the recess with a putty knife.

Apply the Wood Filler Apply wood filler to a putty knife and spread a thin layer of filler across the damaged area.

You mix it like cookie dough, mold it like modeling clay and, when it hardens, you carve and sand it just like wood.
