I do all my work in my small one bedroom apartment, so just opening a can of bondo will cause it to smell for weeks. Are there any alternatives that might smell less?

There might be some 2 part wood filler type products that might be less stinky, also some epoxy putties might work too unless you need lots. Look for the wood filler at your lumber yard or home do it store. Might not be as hard if you need that.

I can't remember who, but someone here about a year ago made a substitute by mixing epoxy with talc. He said it was very similar to shape and sand but didn't stink, or shrink as much. He even had a Youtube video on it.

Apoxie Sculpt, either the regular

or the easier to spread putty.

Even the regular can be thinned with water to make it easier to spread. But can be used to fill seams etc.

Not cheap, but non toxic. I use it all the time and love it, takes a bit of getting used to.

I still use bondo for some applications but use apoxie sculpt whenever i can as an alternative. Downside is it takes overnight to cure.
