Save a Life! I need advice on wood glues.
No, you're not saving *my* life -- you're saving the life of the drunk chatty guy who decided the just-picked-up-from-the-stripper-and-being-sanded antique heart pine 4-panel closet door was a bench to sit on. Now the panel that already had a lengthwise crack (probably from being painted-in) has two more cracks and the moulding on the other side has a chunk broken out. (To say I was furious was an understatement. My boyfriend and another friend quickly escorted the drunk to the sidewalk before I killed him.)
Anyway, is there a wood glue that will take a finish? I'll be finishing the door with BLO and shellac. I'd like to minimize the appearance of the damage (the previously existing lengthwise crack will be obvious, but I'd already rationalized it as "character"). The only wood glue I have right now is the yellow stuff from Lowes. I don't mind picking up something else, or ordering from a website, but have no clue if anything else would be better.
Any suggestions? (Commiseration is also welcome LOL)
