  • How to glue a small bridge that broke?

    I'm not talking about a replica of the Brooklyn Bridge. I bought that a few years ago... I made a pattern for a portrait of my dad and unfortunately left too flimsy of a bridge between his face and where I cut out for his eye. The too thin bridge broke.

    If I use Aleen's glue to connect this small bridge together, should it hold? A tip I saw said to do gluing like this on wax paper so it doesn't stick to the surface. If I glue, should it be before or after finishing with Watco Danish Oil?

    My other alternative is to attach it to the felt or backboard as a floater. Which way would you do it?

    Yes it will hold very well -- try applying it with a tooth pick - and apply it before you finish it..

      I like to hold the pieces together by pinning them to a board till they dry.
      The wax paper is a good idea.
      If you stain first then the glue wont change the stain colour.
      Try to keep the edges clear of stain to allow the glue to soak into the pores.

        Glue first then stain gets my vote. You always get better bonding wood to wood. Also you can use yellow carpenter's glue for this. But if you stain first then use the Aileens
