How to fix this worktop

Postby cagz » Wed Jan 13, 2021 6:55 am

Hello all,

Any recommendations to fix this damage on laminate worktop ? I am considering using hard wax, but not sure how many layers it will take to fill it and how durable it is going to be in the end.

Rough to tell from picture, but I'd use some type of wood filler, sand smooth (or to equivalent of surrounding area), and spray entire edge with a color that's close to the top in terms of color, shade and sheen

Another option: If you still have the broken-off piece....
Clean the mating surfaces and epoxy it back on. Use tape to "clamp" it in place until the epoxy dries. Clean any squeeze out with the epoxy's recommended cleaner/solvent. Contact cement would probably work, also.

Do a dry fit before committing to any gluing type fix.... meaning clean the mating surfaces of any debris, to make sure of a good seamless fit.
