Quick and Easy Drawer Repair - Helmar Creative Team
Thanks to Helmar I have the perfect glue to fix the drawer front and the perfect cleaner to get the duct tape adhesive off. With moving I need to sell or give away the buffet away so the time to fix it is now.
Helmar Super Strength PVA Wood Glue.
I used too much Helmar Super Strength PVA Wood Glue but I have never done a repair like this before and was wanting to ensure I didn't use too little, so I just wiped off the excess with a damp cloth when it seeped out.
Helmar H2000 Remove Cleaner. This stuff is great for getting adhesive residue off things, just spritz and rub off with a rag. It is best to test on a section that isn't visible first.
All fixed, I apparently messed up the alignment and didn't notice until it was dry but that's ok, this was about getting a functional drawer again and it was a messy break. So my advice for people like myself who haven't done repairs like this before is be careful with your alignment when applying the clamps.
