4 Easy Steps to Repairing Wooden Furniture and Drawers

Over time, adhesives holding your wooden drawers and furniture together can become less effective. You might sit on a wooden chair and hear creaks or feel it wobble, or start to feel your drawer stick and pull – this can indicate that the adhesive is no longer doing its job properly. Putting stress or weight on wood that’s not suitably strengthened can lead to irreparable damage. But fixing wooden drawers and furniture can be quick and easy with CT1.

CT1 sealant and adhesive is a great choice for repairing wooden drawers and furniture because it forms an incredibly strong bond to all woods. CT1 is the only product in the market that uses revolutionary TRIBRID® Technology. It’s this ground-breaking technology that makes CT1 360% stronger than a traditional Hybrid Polymer. So, if you want a strong, long-lasting bond, look no further than CT1.

CT1 is also available in a range of colours. If you’re looking to match your furniture exactly, CT1 is available in white, black, grey, beige, brown, oak, blue, silver or anthracite. If you’d prefer a colourless adhesive, CT1 is also available in clear. And, thanks to the TRIBRID® Technology, CT1 is scientifically proven to have excellent colour retention. Meaning clear will stay clear.

 How to repair wooden furniture and drawers using CT1

Step 1: locate the area or joint you want to repair and take the wood apart gently. If you’re upcycling wooden furniture, you may have taken the entire piece apart, but if you’re just looking to repair one chair leg, for example, then start with that joint only. When the existing adhesive is no longer effective, it should take little effort to detach.

Step 2: clean up the joint. If there is old adhesive present, it can cause an unpleasant finish, so take as much residue as you can off using sandpaper, a chisel or a paint scraper. Be careful not to scratch any wood that will be on show afterwards. You should only be cleaning up the joint area, which will be covered after your furniture has been glued back together using CT1.

Step 3: take your CT1 sealant and adhesive. You can squeeze it directly onto the joint or use a paintbrush to spread a layer of CT1 evenly around the area. Make sure to cover the entire surface area of the joint in CT1, including any mortises and tenons. This will ensure a complete, strong bond.

Step 4: attach your joints back together. As you press the two sides together, any excess CT1 may seep out of the joint. Simply take a damp cloth to wipe this away. CT1 is non-toxic, so it won’t harm the wood, but you don’t want any drips ruining your great finish. CT1 forms a strong bond quickly, so your drawer or furniture should be ready to use straight away.

Using CT1 to repair your wooden furniture and drawers is a great DIY project anyone can do at home – even if you’re not a DIYer! Purchase your CT1 today from online retailer, ToolStation.
