Last year I showed you what a wonderful job my Earlex sprayer did on my old porch rocking chairs. Well it was a bad weather season and the lower rockers were starting to rot out on me. What was I to do about that? Well, Abatron’s Wood Restoration Kit came to the rescue!

 

This two part epoxy system was easy to use and did the trick.

 

 

I first cleaned out the rotten wood and  mixed the Liquid Wood resins in a rubber mixing bowl and brushed it onto the rotted out runners. While the Liquid Wood was still tacky, I mixed the two parts of the WoodEpox on a piece of glass and using my spatula, I spread it over the rocker and built up a nice base.

 

A helpful hint was to keep placing my spatula in  water which really helped smooth it out.

 

After a few days of curing and drying, it was sanded, painted and ready for another few years of good use on the old front porch at my house.

 

 

 

 

But I didn’t stop there.

 

To protect it and make it slide a little easier, I put a slick strip (400-1158) over the runners.

 

It was fast, easy and a pleasure to work with. I have lots left over for more “rotten” projects in the future.
