One of our wood window grilles broke and I would like to try to repair it. The wood is pine and the manufacturer is Marvin. Can I glue it, and if so what kind of glue should I use? Thanks.
You will also need to clamp the two pieces together for several hours until the glue sets.
There are several ways to clamp. Mechanical screw/spring clamps, tightly tape the joint with electrical tape(masking tape is not a good choice for several reasons) or even medical tape, or weights set on the joint.
One gotcha, the above glue will also stick to clamps/tape/weights, so using waxed paper around the joint is a good idea. You also need to clean up the squeezed out glue before using the waxed paper and clamps.
The glue allows several minutes(5 or so) to work.
Thank you very much handymac!
5 Min Epoxy. Clamp for 10 mins to be on the safe side ;)
Thank you too, Casey!
It worked! Now just a dab of paint and it will look as good as before it broke. Thanks again.
