Should I Fill A Crack in a Piece of Furniture
I have a bachelor’s chest I made out of Austrailian jarrah, which is a very dense exotic. After 25 years, I noticed an exterior crack on the right side of the cabinet. The crack can’t be seen from inside the cabinet. It runs from the top of the chest about 3/4 way to the base but the crack is only “open” about half the way down. I’d say the crack opening is 1/32 to 1/16″ wide at its widest point. I’m refinishing the chest and am trying to decide if I should put a small amount of glue in and sand that surface to fill in the crack or just leave it alone. Not sure if filling will make the crack expand more. Any comments would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.
