Coconix Floor and Furniture Repair Kit

Damp cloth

Sandpaper (if needed)

Insect repellent (optional but highly recommended)

Step 1

Preparing the Area

  • Carefully remove any worm-eaten wood splinters from the damaged area.
  • Clean the area and remove any debris.
  • Wipe down the area with a damp cloth and let it dry thoroughly. Make sure to check for any worms hiding in the wood. If you find any, just remember they're just misunderstood creatures looking for a home.

Step 2

Filling the Worm Damage

  • For worm damage larger than 1/4 of an inch, use the wood putty to fill the damaged area on the wooden chair.
  • Cut off the required amount of wood putty and knead it until it becomes a uniform color.
  • Apply the putty within 2 minutes after kneading. Press the putty firmly into the damaged area until curing is noticeable. Do not leave a bulge.
  • For a smooth surface, rub the area with a damp cloth prior to hardening. After 1 hour, the wood putty can be sanded, tapped, and drilled.

Step 3

Matching the Color

  • Refer to the Color Mixing Guide found in the kit to match the color of the wooden chair and prepare the mixture in the empty mixing jar.

Step 4

Applying the Repair Compound

  • Apply the repair compound to the damaged area. Start by applying it around the edges of the worm damage and work your way towards the center to avoid air bubbles.
  • Use the spatula for larger applications and the brush for surface applications and detail touch-ups.
  • Smooth out the surface and wipe off the excess with a paper towel.

Step 5

Drying and Additional Layers

  • Allow several hours for the repair compound to dry until it is no longer sticky to the touch.
  • If needed, apply additional layers until the repaired area is level with the surrounding area of the wooden chair.

Step 6

Adding Texture (optional)

  • If your wood has grain patterns, designs, or texture, you can recreate them using a small brush and dark colors like Walnut, Mahogany, and Black.

Step 7

  • Avoid placing any wet items directly on the chair surface, as this can cause discoloration or warping.
  • Use coasters or placemats to protect the chair from scratches and spills.
  • Dust the chair regularly with a soft cloth or brush to remove any dirt or debris.
  • Use a mild cleaning solution and a damp cloth to clean the chair surface. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials.
  • Apply a coat of furniture wax or sealant to the chair surface to protect it from scratches and spills.
  • Keep the chair away from sources of water to prevent future worm damage. And, if you're feeling extra cautious, you can even spray some insect repellent on the chair to keep those worms away for good.
