    Gap filling adhesive advice

    Thanks Sean, I haven't heard of that technique before, but completely see the logic in the process. Could you advise if this method suited to all sizes of split timbers or for smaller breaks? Thanks Simon

    Thanks both, Sounds like a plan! I will assess it after i've glued it to see whether I can get away with dowels or if a timber insert is needed. Thanks again Simon

    Gap filling adhesive advice

    HI All, I am hoping you could please advise? I have been asked to glue and rehang a door that has split at the bottom hinge area.

    Rubberwood - I think

    Completly agree with 'TheTiddles'. I made an outdoor seat a few years ago from some 'meranti' that my dad brought back from Malaysia after his employment over there ended. Every couple of years I jet wash it and give it two or three coats of Danish Oil, with quick sanding of 320 grit between...
