Hole in wood door
 
Is there a quick and easy way to fill a hole in a wood door about the size of a fist?

First, some anger management classes to prevent future holes.
Second, hollow core or solid core door?

Quickest, easiest and best looking repair would be a new door.

A BIG mirror over a little hole

If hollow door and painted then spray foam to fill hole, durabond90 to smooth finish and then a coat of primer and paint.

Yeah, just put your fist back in the hole :laughing:

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

If it is solid, buy a new door.

If it is hollow core and stained, get a new door.

If it is hollow and painted, use a couple strips of lath or paint stir stick and some wood glue to patch the hole from the inside of the door. Bondo can be used to fill in the gap between the face of the door and the lath. Sand and paint and it will be ok looking.

Hollow door blanks are CHEAP. I'd buy a new one.

:laughing: It's a hollow door...very cheap. It wasn't my fist that broke it, but a kong toy that bounced into it. Guess I threw it too hard that time and it hit the door. Thanks for the help everyone.

Shi...stuff does happen. So it's a hollow-core...flat or paneled? And as always, any pics? (i'm a pain)

Wow, not even a honeycomb door! You sir, are cheap! :wink: You could replace the door blank for $30, more or less.

Or, do like I said and slip strips of plywood in there and use Bondo. Then you can paint it.

Replacing the door is the best option.If you decide to use Bondo, take the door outside. Bondo is best used in a well ventilated area.

i wouldn't use bondo in that, it would probably crack out
