    Would appreciate advice on filling a few holes in an external wooden door.

    I wish to keep an old external porch door (glazed) going for another year or so until a new porch is constructed which will require a new door. The old door has a few areas of wet rot which I intend to dig/rout out then fill. One patch of rot, around 5" x 5", probably runs through the depth of the door to the inside (at one point) though the door still feels sturdy.

    Whilst I'll replace sections of wood with new wood wherever I can, there will likely be some deep filling required. My question is: what's the best filler, or filler type, I can use? Thanks.

    Car body filler. Mix it with the hardener and it's rock hard in 10 minutes.

    It's the same as some 'wood fillers' you can buy, but a fraction of the price.
