Easy Door Frame Rot Repair

My future father-in-law's back door was starting to rot at the bottom and he asked me about it. He said he wanted to know if he needed a whole new door.  I told him I could just patch it up with some epoxy putty and he looked at me a little funny. Once the job was done, he was pleasantly surprised at how good it looked and he was surely glad he didn't have to buy a new door.

I made a video on the method I used, maybe you could use it too!

I love seeing the ants escaping from behind the molding. The moisture that's there is probably attracting them and causing unseen damage.

+Tim, not sure where you are seeing the "ants" but there were not any ant present and the wood was completely dry and free of moisture.
The repair is still holding strong today as it is at my father-in-law's house and I see it regularly.

http://bit.ly/2AAlpdS. How I Discovered The Secret To DIRT CHEAP Lumber & Power Tools!"

If You Want To Save Thousands Of Dollars On Your Woodworking Projects Then Please Pay Close Attention To What I'm About To Share With You...

Dear Woodworker,

What if I told you there was a way to get the lumber and tools you need for your woodworking projects at prices far below what everyone else pays?

In fact, you're about to learn...

A where you can get power tools in like-new condition for up to 80% off!

The simple trick to getting beautiful oak, cherry, mahogany and walnut for pennies!

How to get that table saw, drill press, lathe, or miter saw you've been wanting for a fraction of list price!

Find this hard to believe?

I know it's true because I personally used these same secrets to keep myself out of the doghouse!

My Big Screw-Up.

Here's the story.

Years ago, when my wife and I bought our first house, we put every last penny into the downpayment.

But I assured my wife I'd still have enough money to fix up the place. My plan was to buy the tools and materials I needed out of my monthly paychecks.

Yes, I was that naive.

To say the house was a "fixer upper" was an understatement.

It was a dump!

But I promised my wife I'd fix it up in no time and turn it into a proper home for her and our two kids.

Looking back, I'm lucky my wife didn't leave me, because things did NOT go according to plan!

For starters, the renovations took longer and proved FAR more costly than I had expected.

In fact, the whole thing would have been an utter disaster if I hadn't discovered a bizarre secret that allowed me to get the building supplies and power tools I needed at DIRT CHEAP prices.

But before I tell you exactly how I did that, let me prove that I know what I'm talking about...

Here's PROOF My Methods Work:

Case Study #1:
Maple Hardwood Flooring

Regular price: $5 - $8 per square foot
Using my method: Just $.50 per square foot!
Savings: $4,500+!

Using Secret Source #1, I was able to acquire approximately 1,000 square feet of premium eastern maple hardwood flooring (with birdseye maple pieces!) for just fifty cents per square foot! I should have paid over $5,000, but I got it for $500 -- a $4,500 savings!


Case Study #2:
Makita 5007F Circular Saw



Regular price: $146
Using my method: Just $50!
Savings: $96!

Using Secret Source #7, I uncovered a 5007F Makita circular saw in excellent shape for almost 70% off! That's a full $96 savings -- almost one hundred bucks you can put back in your wallet!


Case Study #3:
Cabinet Grade Plywood



Regular price: $$$
Using my method: FREE!
Savings: $$$!

Using Secret Source #9, I was able to locate 4x8 sheets of 5/8" cabinet grade plywood for free -- that's premium-grade plywood that didn't cost a cent! That sound good to you?


Case Study #4:
Hitachi Table Saw

Regular price: $399
Using my method: Just $250!
Savings: $149!

With Secret Source #7, I found a brand-new 10 inch Hitatch table saw for just $250. That same exact model was selling in a big box hardware store for $399! That's a whopping $149 savings!


Case Study #5:
Premium V Groove Paneling



Regular price: $6 per square foot
Using my method: Just $1.63 per square foot!
Savings: $4,807!

Using Secret Source #8, I found over 1,100 square feet of brand new longleaf V groove pine paneling for just $1.63 per square foot. And this high-end product usually sells for $6 per square foot! That adds up to a whopping $4,807 savings for the lot. What a deal!


Case Study #6:
Makita HR2455R Rotary Hammer



Regular price: $396
Using my method: Just $149!
Savings: $247!
