Make Wood Good Product Line

Why ‘Make Wood Good’?

We love wood and believe more people would use this versatile material if its maintenance requirements were lower. At Make Wood Good we aim to help you do it once and do it right, reducing maintenance time and costs to make Wood a preferred material. We aim to provide products that protect, preserve and restore you wood to a high standard.

So Why Smiths Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer™ (CPES™)?

Dr S Dakin – Managing Director – MakeWoodGood Ltd. (UK)

It has never been easy to buy CPES in the UK, and with some major restoration work due on my house, from the priming of new oak window frames to the restoration and repair of softwood and hardwood structural timbers, I had to acquire some more. After a short while I had my Victor Kiam / Remington moment, and not having enough money to ‘buy the company I liked so much’, decided to establish a distribution arrangement instead.

I have used it for both restoration of rotten wood and preservation of new wood as the ultimate primer; for this second purpose it is marketed in America as  ‘MultiWoodPrime™’. CPES and MultiWoodPrime are exactly the same product, labelled to convey the two distinct functions it performs so well. Manufacturers of wooden products can use it to enhance their reputations by massively extending the life of their products whilst reducing the maintenance costs of the paint or varnish finish.

CPES is the perfect solution for sealing and finishing interior timber. In low UV environments it needs no maintenance, enhances the grain and seals timber from stains and water damage. See how this fast durable finish can enhance timber in your home, oak shaker doors, under stairs winerack storage. It is the sensible alternative to Oils, Waxes and Varnishes inside the home.

Uses of Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer

Preservation – As a Primer For Wood

Application of Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer (CPES or MultiWoodPrime) to new timber offers some remarkable advantages to anything constructed from wood. It creates a breathable sealant, penetrating deeply into new timber, especially on vulnerable areas such as end grain. Used as the ultimate primer it promotes adhesion of your top coat, making it last much longer and reducing maintenance costs. This saves time, money and the environment. From boats to window frames, it’s just solid commercial sense, do it once, do it right, make wood good!

Manufacturing – Priming New Exterior Wood To Increase Durability

If you are manufacturing wooden products, how well they last and how good they look defines the quality of your product. Application of MultiWoodPrime at manufacture will offer an additional revenue stream for your joinery shop. It will enhance your reputation for quality and durability and customer satisfaction. Further it will significantly reduce the maintenance costs of your product if it is exposed to the elements.
Ideally suited to anyone manufacturing: Doors, Window Frames, Outdoor Furniture, Sheds, Gates, Timber (or part timbered) Buildings.

Bulk Packs for Manufacturers. Larger sizes of most products are available for use by manufacturing businesses wishing to offer these remarkable products to their customers. If you make wooden doors, windows, sheds, fences or any other wood products that are exposed to the elements, then please contact us for further details. The longer your product lasts and looks good, the better it reflects on you.

Restoration – Curing Rot, Consolidating and Recovering Profiles

Restore don’t replace.

It saves time, money and the environment all at once.
Damaged wood can be made good, and resistant to further attack by rot and insects using a combination of CPES and Fill-It. Make Wood Good sell dedicated repair kits to affect repairs to rotten timbers and masonry cracks at a discounted price.

Good Products

I have been using the epoxy glue for oak worktops and am very happy with it. It is easy to work with and the results are excellent. Using marine grade materials is reassuring for exterior work and I am looking forward to using other Smith & Co products.

Excellent product

This was my second order of Epoxy Wood Glue.
I placed my first order in 2022 after starting to restore and repair antique clocks.
Some of the clock cases are in a very poor condition, but the epoxy wood glue does an amazing job and goes a really long way. I only purchased the 10ml filled syringe and it lasted ages, I have just purchased my 2nd 10ml filled syringe.
I would definitely recommend this product.

Thanks for that Lynda - they last a bit better than they might as they are 25ml not 10 but you are clearly a very careful mixer and user. Glad you like the product, Steve

Best product and best support

I’ve ordered twice and been using products past year, both pre and post order I have received excellent support and advice on use of products- and very fast responses. I could not be more pleased with the service and most importantly the end results.
