Putty is a versatile compound used to fill gaps and seal openings. It comes in different types, such as wood putty and plumber’s putty.

Wood putty is a mixture of wood dust and other materials used to conceal imperfections or flaws in wood products. The challenging part of applying wood putty is finding the right shade to match the wood. It can be used to fill nail holes or cover small blemishes on the wood surface, and then sanded and stained to match the original finish. Grain filler is another type of putty that fills open grain pores to create a smooth and even surface.

Plumber’s putty, on the other hand, is designed for sealing water pipes and is particularly useful for installing or fixing sinks, showers, and toilets.
