    Hello Everyone - I'm in the process of finishing a slab and was considering purchasing System Three T-88 to fill some cracks. These are not large cracks - maybe 1/16th or 1/8th thick - but there are a few of them and a couple of them are about 8" long. Are these worthy of filling w-epoxy? and...

    Here's a few pictures of the blank I'm working on now. As you can see, it's got a bit of a crack and a void in it. I had a go filling this with 2 part epoxy-resin. Thing is, it was my first time using the stuff so I don't think I got it quite right, though I'm intending to add the finishing...

    I have a piece of maple log that I hollowed out and was pretty much done with it which I had been working on in my garage. Once I was done with it I brought it in the house and then a couple days after being in the house a few cracks appeared in the piece. Here is the piece showing the cracks...

    Need advice. Fairly new to bowl turning compared to a lot of you all. I have made appx. 70 mostly segmented bowls in a little over a year and just recently found the walnut and maple (shown in my albums) to have cracks in the joints highlighted. Cracks about .0003 open and run from center 1/4"...

    Hey all, I'm new to the forum, and looking for some tips on repairing large cracks in wood. For my high school senior project, I'm restoring an 1867 George Stevens and Co. pipe organ. Some of the larger pipes are made of wood and have developed splits along their length over the years. Thoughts...

    Hi - I have zero woodworking experience and would appreciate any suggestions on how to deal with the large cracks in an old farm table I just purchased. http://oi46.tinypic.com/21aihvm.jpg I'd like to repair the cracks, especially as they seem fragile. I guess can live with the slight warping...

    Poly Ethylene Glycol- This stuff is sold as a wood stabiliser so green, fresh cut pieces of wood can be dried out fast, with no splitting or twisting. Is there anybody who has used this stuff who can shed any light on the practical use of this substance? All I know is that you are supposed to...

    I'm relatively new to woodworking and will be making an outdoor sign from a large elm slab. The slab is roughly 3' x 4' x 3" thick and is fairly dry. My question is, how do I best fill the cracks and ensure they or the filler don't separate during the changing weather throughout the year in...

    Hi All, first post on this forum for me... I have a couple of vintage chairs with wooden laminated seatings, the problem is that some of them have a badly cracked in, I think, such a way that glue-ing them even with the most modern and powerful glue is not strong enough because there is...
