This door was rotted all the way through on the bottom. It was never sealed… since it is one of a matching pair the choice was to replace them BOTH or fix the rotted one!

These first photos show the un-touched door and the areas of rotten wood close up.

These photos show the loose wood has been removed and remaining wood treated with the S-1 Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer.

I put screws into the door to act as more support for the paste, 2x4s covered in foil* clamped into place act as forms for the paste. *Although the customer used foil, we would recommend polyethylene plastic instead.
