I have 2 wood columns at my front entry that are about 6" diameter and 7' tall. I need to repair several cracks and some rotten areas at the bottom of the columns. Does anyone have experience with 2-part epoxy material or other successful repair process?? Thanks!

Hi jrohr4,

Sure, the 2part stuff works great. You need to dig out the 'bad/rotted' material and fill. Just work quickly and be neat. You'll need a sander to smooth things out. Do you have a specific question/concern???

check, Make sure you treat any rot and stop all moisture intrusion.

Try Bondo. The same stuff one would use on autobody repair. I use it for all outside wood repairs and it sands and finishes beautifully.

If you want to use polyester filler (bondo) make sure that you use marine grade.
