Both this pair of doors are to be taken off to enable some new wood to be spliced into bottom rails.
It was intended to strip the paint while they are off & re-prime in oil based primer (Undercoat & gloss will also be oil paint).
Joints between the match-boarding were originally filled with Linseed-oil Putty.
The question I want to ask is, would it be recommended to fill using Linseed-oil Putty this time round? It would be my intention to prime locally before filling.
Any comments or opinions re alternative fillers would be appreciated.

As it's a door and prone to a bit of movement, I think I'd be looking at something like this

I haven't used it myself but it looks ideal

Looks a useful product.

I used the gun version of Fibacryl a couple of years back where caulk had failed miserably, and it worked a treat. I think it's got a pretty long drying time from what I remember. Good product though.

It would be good if you could recollect how long the drying time was; two or three days perhaps?
In the spec it mentions 'fibers' in the make up which makes it flexible.
I did wonder if these fobers prevented tooling it smooth in small cracks?

The problem would be how to get a sooth finish (I think). Before the posts above I would have suggested two part wood filler but ... If the gaps on the vertical panels are small I would be inclined not to fill them at all and let the paint close the gaps. Linseed based putty on old wood won't last well. Once the wood absorbs the oil the putty will drop off ... and having to fill tiny gaps it will drop off faster. Exterior glue with wood sawdust mixed in may be another option (back to fibres).

Just helping muddle up the waters.
