    Repairing a Crack in a Guitar Top

    This is a video about repairing a crack in the top of a Martin guitar. but the techniques could be used in other woodworking projects.

    What I found interesting is that he uses a suction cup to pump the glue down into the small crack.

    Watched that yesterday, and I actually have a guitar with a cracked back I need to try that on.

    I really enjoy the weekly stewmac newsletter and almost always watch the videos. Great stuff Dan!
