Put the shopvac hose on one side and your bottle of Gorilla brand Wood Glue on the other. The hose will suck the glue in, and you can clamp it together to make a seamless repair.

I even force it a bit by dragging a dental pick down the crack to wedge it open a bit more, but be careful, you can make the seam show if you force the pick too much.

BTW, Gorilla brand Wood Glue* is not the same as Gorilla Glue!

Interesting Dallas. Is that Gorilla’s version of Titebond?

I use Dallas’s tip with Titebond but be sure you fix the splits/cracks BEFORE you dimension your stock. Don’t ask how I learned this!

mnpete, yup, it’s the equivalent of TB III (I think).

I’ve used it a lot and have been pleased with it.

As Andy says, TB works too, and make sure you do this before surfacing!
