I was reading your post as I was searching this site for information related to glue and its uses. You see I have this antique wood bedframe that I am trying repair. I am not so worried about keeping its value, it is more a sentimental piece that I just want to repair for use by my daughter. Anyway, it is a structural repair. The footboard of the bed is split top to bottom with a crack. The crack runs across some molding – the footboard has 3 panels joined together and covered with moldings. Anyway I have been having this debate with friends over using wood glue like Elmers versus Epoxy. I personally thought that the Elmers would be too weak to hold the stress this area might take. I don’t want the seam to rip open and have my daughter with the bed coming crashing to the floor or something. So what do you recommend to use?
