Need help restoring wood side tables
« on: April 26, 2021, 07:21:33 AM »
I plan on sanding but need help where the wood is separated.  Glue,  some type of filler?

Whatís you approach for the Weber logo? Do you care if you lose it in the sanding?

If the logo is engraved, you can repaint the logo, then lightly sand to remove the excess paint.   Iíve done this on 80s and 90s single screw handles that have engraved lettering, lines, and kettle silhouette. 

Iíd try some wood glue in the larger seam, where it might split if stressed.  Clamp it good if you can.  Wood filler should work on the small cracks.

I would use use outdoor rated wood glue to give that joint some strength.

I agree with the wood glue suggestions. Make sure you buy a high quality wood clue and clamp it well.

The important thing is to get the glue down in those cracks. You can put bead of glue on there and use compressed air, or even a straw, to blow the glue down in there. If you don't get good coverage in the crack it will likely happen again. If you have access to a table saw and don't mind losing maybe 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch in length due to the saw kerfs, you can rip the table down the cracks and glue them back together. That way you'll have a brand new joint with full coverage.

I would recommend Titebond III Ultimate glue for your exterior application.

Very good idea!
