Best product to fill nail holes in skirting boards

Hi everyone.

 

I need to fill some nail holes in skirting boards and door trims before painting. There are also some imperfections in the wood that I would like to smooth over before painting. What's the best product to use?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

I use Timbermate wood fillers on most of my projects. It is an Australian made and owned product as well.

I'll second what @JP_Finlay has suggested with Timbermate Wood Filler. It's available in a few colours to match the timber being filled. It's water based for easy clean up. And the best part is its indefinite shelf life.

Thank you. Hoping to get stuck into it over the weekend.

Just noticed I never came back to this. I did use Timbermate and it's fantastic. Very easy to use - just add a bit of water if its stiff and/or sit the pot in some boiling water. Was really pleased with the end result, too.
