Wood Repair Using Plastic Filler (bondo)

The house we just bought had damage to several of the stair trim pieces of wood from a dog.  Here are some pictures I took of my fix.  I started with a dowel glued in a hole I drilled, then added fiberglass bondo.  I used a rasp and double cut file to shape the bondo after it hardened.  Once I had the basic shape, I switched to an all-purpose bondo that went on much thinner.  More filing and finally sanding and painting.

    Bondo brings back memories of the 200$ car I bought when I was 16. It was white with big rust polka dots Pontiac Tempest before I painted it blue.
