Re: Teak crack

I can't help thinking that it would be a hell of a lot simpler and easier to simply replace it with something a little beefier.

Even if you did manage to glue the crack together, you're no better off than you were originally - a too thin piece that will simply crack again - next time alongside the glue line if your gluing was strong.
