Broken chair

Postby jackpomroy » Wed Sep 12, 2018 10:36 pm

Hi everyone - id really appreciate some help on fixing a few cracks I have in a dining room chair.
I’ve attached the picture below - is it just a case of getting wood dust and superglue then clamping it together tight?
Any help would be great
Thanks
Jack

Welcome to the forum. unfortunately you have to make a couple of posts before being able to include a photo to avoid the forum getting spammed.

Without seeing the problem, I can tell you that superglue and wood dust won't work unless you want to create something like sandpaper. If a joint has failed you could try a product called chair doctor glue. if it is non structural cracks that you want to fill then a wax filler stick would probably be best.

Hi Jack, CASCAMITE is a very good wood glue for furniture, in my opinion. Very strong once set and ideal for small joints.
And welcome to the forum.

But wouldn't it depend on where the cracks are ? If in new wood then I can see Cascamite working a treat but if it's a glued joint come apart then not sure Cascamite will stick on a sealed surface. If that is the case, epoxy ?

Welcome to the forum, Jack.


Yes that might be a good point to consider. Jack.

Try typing 'Cascamite' into Google - (other search engines are available) :roll: :roll:
