Bed Frame Tear - Advice to Fix

Hello,

I'm new to this forum. But I accidentally tore the back of my bed head, and if anyone would be able to give me some advice on whether it's fixable and how to do so, that'd be great!

I was thinking perhaps some type of wood glue to stick the flap back onto the panel would do the job, though not sure what exact product I would be using in this case. I attached some pictures.

Thank you!

Hello, and welcome Chopin! Are you a classical pianist?

Wood glue (titebond III) and clamps should at least get that thin plywood back in place.

That's some interesting construction. It looks hollow. Is that metal inside, or wood? How are the bed rails (sides) attached to the headboard?

Thanks very much, Sanchez.

Yes, I'm a classical pianist. Do you listen to classical music yourself?

I'm not too sure about the construction of the frame. It appears to be partially hollow but it seems to be made entirely of wood. The rails are connected to the headboard by some dowels and a long screw.

I do! My daughter is a classical violinist with the local youth orchestra, and is planning on doing it for a career.

Ah, so it's built like a hollow core door. A skin on each side of filler strips in important areas. That makes it lighter.

Did it break because of an impact to the back side, and not because the rails broke it from the inside?

Difficult to see in the picture. It looks like what is torn is some synthetic material. If that is the case a two part epoxy would be a better adhesive. wood glues are for porous materials. Regardless of what adhesive you will need some kind of clamps to hold the part down until the glue dries. It might be as simple as the spring clamps they sell at Home Depot for a dollar. Just be sure to clean what ever adhesive oozes out while the adhesive is wet. Epoxy can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Wood glues use a damp cloth.
