I have been pleasantly surprised with how well this Wood Hardener has worked.

Using a disposable brush, add the hardener until it has a shiny finish.

Dry for 2-4 hours and it hardens and secures all the surrounding wood.

Next is a stainable wood filler. I’m using an interior/exterior Minwax product.

Apply with a plastic spreader.

Allow the wood filler to dry for 24 hours and then sand down for a smooth finish.

You are free to paint or stain your gate!
