Topic tags/keywords: ply titebond

I made mistake L section of bar top. I have to remove 2’ piece of 3/4 CTX ply that was glued to 3/4 particle board using titebond. Am I going to be able to split these apart – or will I just create a mess? I wanted to x-cross the layers at the L, but forgot to leave top ply piece shorter for the overlap.

You might, but then I’d just saw kerf the 2” edge multiple times at a just shy proper depth, break away the waste and then chisel or route to a clean bottom. I would consider using draw-tite anchors to pull the two together.

@jagwah. Thank you. I am not familiar with the loc-tite anchors. Any link on those? tia

the glue bond will be stronger than the particle board and make a mess. you could cut a rabbet in the top side of the glued down board and the bottom of the next board to make a lap and screw them together.

@williams – here are links to a couple of products for connecting countertop sections. I like the FlipBolts.

You can also usually find the draw-tite bolts at Home Depot or Lowes where they sell the pre-made countertops.
