In an otherwise attractive piece of wood, an unsightly split or crack can run deep like family turmoil. Most wood fillers are intended to be little more than aesthetic solutions. Even the hardiest fillers are intended to withstand compressive forces but not sheer stress. Here I will demonstrate my solution for when I don’t want to give-up on a piece of wood. This block was salvaged from a eucalyptus tree that fell on my grandmother’s house (don’t worry, I’m fine). I want to be able to work on it without risk of further splittage.
I do all my wood repair at TechShop.
