Repairing antique furniture and old wooden windows may seem like a difficult task at first. The truth is, even hobby carpenters and antique furniture restorers can achieve good results, even with a minimal tool park. Sanding, decoration and surface treatment are the three steps that must be performed. Grinding can be done by machine or by hand. After choosing the wooden onlays, you only need to fix them. Below is a little help with this step.
Gluing of wood carved ornament
You don't need special tools to fix it. Just a few things that are readily available. Sanding paper, wood glue (D2 or D3) and something you can use to press down and press while drying.
But let's look at the work in progress:
1. Sanding: It is worth sanding the pattern of the wooden corbels to get rid of small surface defects. It is also worth sanding the back before gluing. Also, if possible, the surface to be glued should also be prepared by sanding.
2. Gluing: Apply glue to both previously sanded and dust-free surfaces, then spread evenly. After that, all we have to do is to press the two surfaces together during drying. We can do this in several ways. We can press it with a carpenter's clamp, but also with weights. Professionals also use small nails to fasten it. If some glue comes out around the gluing, wipe it with a slightly damp cloth, so you won't have a problem with it later. It depends on the temperature, but after a few hours the glue hardens, so the clamp can be removed. Of course, if you want to be sure, you should wait for it to dry completely, it can take 12-24 hours. We have tested the following adhesives for gluing decorative elements and skirting boards, so we can recommend them:
Glass, mirror: Pattex special (also known as liquid nail)
Furniture panel: Pattex special, yarn lakleim
For wood, for the edges of furniture panels: any wood glue is suitable
