I know it’s not #tooltuesday But I wanted to give a little mention to my methods yesterday.
It felt a little weird injecting wood glue into cracks with a syringe, but it really was the perfect tool for the job. Another method to correct cracks is to slather glue on one side and use a vacuum on the other to pull the glue into the crack. That’s a bit messy though, and this was precision work since I can’t afford to have squeeze out ruining the patina on the old wood box. After I was done, I simply cleaned up with warm water and it’s ready for next time.
I’ve added a link to a set of blunt tip glue syringes in my link tree under “tools I use”. Check it out, they’re inexpensive and a super handy tool to have in the shop for fixes like this.

While I’m working through the finish stages of the pasta boxes, I had to convert the shop to a dust free zone for the time being. So while the oil finish sets, I’m working on a repair project that I’ve put off for far too long.
This old crate is loosely held together by rusty old nails and the wood planks are split in places. I’m using some @titebondproducts and a syringe to get into the splits and clamping the ancient wood with some equally ancient screw clamps. Top and bottom are craftsman branded and the middle is a home made cherry clamp my wife’s uncle gifted me when he took to the nomadic lifestyle in a refurbished airstream. They’re old style clamps and tedious to set up properly, but I’m not sure they can be beat for function in situations like this. I’m using some offcuts of melamine as cauls to even out and extend the clamping pressure.
Next I’ll repair the missing panel and reattach it with salvaged nails, then reinforce the interior corners with 45° bracing and glue. End result will be a functional rustic storage box with history written into the wood.
