I am trying to identify a product used to patch and fill insect damage and rot on exposed wood members, as recently shown on a Bob Vila program. The product was apparently a two-part epoxy (one green, one clear part, in case that helps) that was mixed and smoothed into voids in wood and gaps between members. It was shown to be easily shaped with a wood chisel after drying. Most notable was that it was used to fill gaps as much as an inch wide.

I plan to use this product to secure custom-made thresholds and transition for a new wood floor installation. I need a product that can provide some thickness to fill subfloor unevenness and support the threshold piece at an exact level.

Thank you for your feedback.

A search of 'wood restoration' on google brings up many sites.
