Repair Wood Scrolling

One of the trickiest repairs to do.  Normally, Mister Glue does a marvellous job gluing wood to wood.  Bonding two surfaces in the case of wood scrolling you are usually dealing with the tiniest of surfaces

A couple of things to have your attention on. 

  1. One might be tempted to lay the two pieces on a surface to keep them steady as the bond is curing.  Odds are extremely high that the whole piece will end up thoroughly attached to whatever surface it sits on.  Rest wrists on something to steady things while you are holding the two pieces together.  It only takes a few seconds to set up.
  2. Use Accelerator.  The brush or spray, whichever you have.  Apply to one surface with the glue on the other (a very tiny bit of Mister Glue as the surface is incredibly small here) and give it several seconds before pressing the two surfaces together.  I always use Accelerator when working with wood.  Makes it even faster and an amazingly strong bond. 

Once it has set, like I said this only takes a few seconds, set aside to fully cure.  The glue on the outside is likely dry enough at this point to lay the whole thing down but if you are unsure set it so the freshly bonded surface is not touching anything. 

That should do it. 

You can glue almost any two wood surfaces together with a combination Mister Glue and Accelerator.  You are likely not going to broad strokes, lots of yellow and white glue and clamps for this.  But if you need any kind of repair and/or just don’t want something coming apart try this combo.

This particular item was important to me as it was from my son's wedding.  My wife has a matching one.
