Introduction

I have a broken cabinet door that was accidentally, snapped into two sections. I plan to use a two part 5 minute epoxy, with wood bonding compatibility and duct tape to help hold the two sections together while the epoxy cures. With this simple process I will have a fully repaired cabinet door in under 30 minutes.

  • Take a piece of duct tape and put it on both sides for extra bonding support. Only put the tape on the bigger part of the dresser door for now. You will attach the other side with tape in a later step.

  • This is a 5 minute quick setting 2 part wood epoxy. Take the top off the epoxy. Connect the syringe tip and lock it in place. Press the plunger so you can fill the needle tip with epoxy.

  • Attach and align the smaller cabinet door section to the bigger cabinet door section. Press them firmly together and apply the duct tape on both ends for bonding support.

  • Flip door over to front side and tape both ends of the cabinet. This will add more support while it is drying.

  • After at least 15 minutes you can pull tape off completely and wipe away any excess epoxy. It is now finished and ready to be re-installed back to the cabinet.
