Vacuum Glue into a Crack

RATE THIS:

 

 

 

 

Last fall while moving into a new house, I dropped my kitchen table off the back of my pickup truck.

 

The solid oak top suffered a serious crack near one corner. I figured some glue and a clamp would take care of it, but the crack was narrow and the glue didn’t want to flow into it. Some quick thinking provided the perfect solution: I used my shop vacuum to suck the glue down into the crack. Wow, did that work well! I had the clamps on in no time and wiped off the excess glue. Once it was dry, the crack was my little secret.

Never would have thought of that.  We are a resourceful bunch, aren't we?
