This Gorilla Super Glue project is so simple but has been in the making for eight months.
Back in fall of last year, one of our landlord’s handymen was throwing stuff out of the second story apartment while refurbishing it. One of those items hit our poor old plastic yard table. I tossed the two punched-out pieces into my gardening bag and figured I’d glue it later.
I didn’t want to use Krazy Glue because it dries so very quickly and the pieces were a tricky fit. I didn’t want to use a slow-drying glue since I wouldn’t be able to clamp it and didn’t wan to tape it while drying.
Enter Gorilla Super Glue. It dries quickly but not quite as instant as Krazy Glue. Gorilla Super Glue is impact-tough thanks for tiny rubber particles in its formulation – it’s not brittle when hit. Perfect.

A Few Notes:
1. Consider wearing thin gloves (like medical gloves or cleaning gloves) to prevent glue from getting on your skin.
2. Check for fit by fitting the pieces to be glued together before applying any glue.
3. Keep a rag handy to wipe away excess glue from your project and to wipe the glue tip clean before replacing the cap.
4. Read the bottle’s full instructions before using.
A few days after completing the table repair, I cleaned and oiled it (and cleaned it again) to remove grease spots and restore the table. After doing so, not only did our table look pretty sharp, the repair became barely noticeable.
