How to glue down a splinter


Step 1. If you still have the splintered piece of wood, but it has been entirely dislodged from the floor, itís a good bet that the hollowed space left by the splinter has collected a lot of dirt and grime. Combine a 1:3 mixture of distilled white vinegar and water in a bucket. Dip an old toothbrush into the solution and use it to clean out the hole left in the floor. While youíre at it, wipe down the splinter with the solution, too. Allow the floor and splinter to thoroughly dry.

 

Step 2. If the splinter is large, apply wood glue to the hole and splinter. Use a cotton swab or toothpick to apply small amounts of wood glue under smaller splinters. Soak the cotton swab in glue; you donít want cotton swab fuzz sticking out of your floor once the glue dries.

 

Step 3. Press the splinter back into place. To clean up the excess glue, use a slightly damp, lint-free cloth. Do not over soak the cloth with water.

 

Step 4. Allow the adhesive to dry Cover the patch with wax paper and a couple of books. Let the adhesive dry overnight.
