    Duct Tape And Wood Putty

    I must include wood putty as the few things duct tape won't take care of, wood putty will. I once repaired a deck with wood putty. Not impressed ? Consider the deck had missing boards and I crafted new boards out of wood putty. I had no money for new boards. I had no tools. I did...
