I used Loctite Super Glue on a chip here in the house.
Worked perfect.

I was so mad at myself that I didn't prep.. just glued the back and held it in place till it was dry!

No glue works on everything (even super glue). Since this was manufactured a long time ago, it may be different than what you'd use today. I'd think about a professional repair because of some chips that may have disappeared and need to be filled in. This is something you'll look at all the time and it is best to have it perfect again.

Throwing up is not what I'd do. I'd be more likely to scream curses—much easier to clean up and my beloved wife is used to it.

Sadly, it's brand spankin' new......I just made it about 2 months ago. :-(
I think I'll play with it tonight. The worst that could happen is that I have to do it over....and spend another fifty bucks on laminate!
Thanks for all the suggestions! I'm not quite as po'd as I was yesterday!

Oh Becky. Don't worry. we all feel your pain. Since you mentioned now that you were actually the one who laminated it I will go with my original suggestion of doing it over. From the close up of the underside of the laminate it seems you might have been a little lenient with the contact spray? I may be wrong but usually there will be lots of visible fibers or strands of separation of the contact cement in either spray or roll on form. Spray is quick and easy but the roll on contact cement will ensure excellent coverage and under premium conditions will bond for a lifetime.

Well, I used Land Shark's method of wood glue. It took me a while to get it lined up & even then it's not perfect. I never could have lined it up anywhere close with the contact cement. We'll see what happens after I take the clamps off in 24 hours!Click image for larger version

Wood glue... Wood clamp...hmmm sure hope you put a Teflon sheet or something under them .... If you have glue squeeze out it could be a problem.

With that busy of a pattern I doubt you'll notice it, but I feel for you!

I squeezed it a bunch of times before I actually left it there. What fun is it if I don't take a small risk, anyhow? More drama is just the story of my life.....

One thing that you have going in your favor. That boomerang pattern will act as camouflage and make the crack harder to see.

It's pretty hard to see, unless you're looking for it. It isn't exactly flush on one side/end. I think the chip must have been pretty jagged underneath. Anyhow, I put metal edging on the end so it shouldn't ever happen again! Thanks everyone & Land Shark for all the suggestions! The blood pressure is good again!

If you can't see it at 4 feet, it doesn't count! Good job! I knew you could do it!
