Vacuum Glue into a Crack

 In Projects, Questions And Answers, Techniques





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.
