Burn-in Wood Filler for Hardwood Floors, New Woodwork, & Furniture Restoration -Quick Fill Hard Fill

3 min read

Wood fillers can be confusing to understand. I prefer to use a burn-in wood filler for hardwood floors, new woodworking, and furniture restoration work. You use it after the finish goes on so you know exactly what color you need to match the wood. Thanks to Mohawk for partnering with us to make this video.

The first demonstration of the Mohawk Quick Fill burn-in sticks is on a wooden box I built. I applied the finish, which shows me the final color of the wood. I then chose a Quick Fill stick that matched the color. I show this on an area where there was some tear out in the walnut that I couldn’t work out with a card scraper. Then I show the use of Quick Fill on the corner splines where there were some minor voids. It’s a simple process using a battery-powered soldering iron to apply the filler, then level it out with a plastic scraper.

For my woodworking projects, I rarely need wood filler, but what I’ve learned over decades of woodworking experience is that matching wood filler to a project is next to impossible. The reason is that the finish you apply reacts differently to the wood than it does to the wood filler. That’s why I like these burn-in wood fillers, because they go on after the finish so you can dial in the perfect match for your project.

The second demonstration of the Quick Fill is on the restoration of a rocking chair. This chair had a split side rail and after I repaired it, there are some pieces missing. I melt Quick Fill into the void with the closest color I have. After scraping it down, I get a sense of how well it matches. I then add different color by melting them into spots where they need to be darker. It’s a process that can easily be undone if you make a mistake. Sometimes it takes experimentation to work in color to make the repair disappear.

Mohawk provided me with some Hard Fill, which is designed for hardwood floor and table top repairs. This is a harder product that stands up to more abuse. It goes on the same way as the Quick Fill, but because it’s hard, there’s a special Hard Fill Levelling Tool that’s used to flatten out the filler. I used this to repair two dents on my Hickory hardwood floor. By mixing several colours and adding some grain with a graining marker, you can’t find the repair unless you know exactly where it is.

I hope you enjoyed this in-depth video about Mohawk’s burn-in wood fillers.
