I would not be surprised if that opens up again, it doesn't look like you got a tight enough binding/clamping.

Good first try though.

Thanks. I did wrap up with plastic like Julians video shows and then clamped it tight for more than 24 hrs. Still, it doesn't look that tight.
Maybe needs longer/tighter clamping and then fiberglass tape.

The Toe is quite hard to do, you need some off cuts of wood and place on the back, so when its clamped its like a square block and not at an angle on the back (due to the shape of the toe, its never square or rectangle). Hope that makes sense.

I use wooden doorstops and bits of wood.

I wouldn't recommend gorilla glue. It requires the surfaces to be damp to cure, it expands as it cures (this may explain the issues you had clamping it) and it sets too hard and may cause further cracking.

That's only the normal gorilla glue that does that, the wood glue they do acts in the same way as any other wood glue in the application and setting properties, and is excellent too

PVA generally refers to white wood glue, where as gorilla wood glue uses natural wood resins leading to it drying a yellow/orange colour the same as titebond wood glued, I think they may be called PCA instead of PVA because of this if I remember correctly, both work exactly the same really, apart from gorilla glue I've found dries a little better in deep cracks where as PVA can sometimes take a few days to dry if its deep in the bat like for serious delamination

My experience is just the colour difference, but open to being told otherwise, its still bloody expensive by comparison though lol.

Polyeurathane glues expand as they cure and require moisture to cure. PVA glues do not expand and cure by evaporation. I believe they have similar strength properties though. I guess it depends what you personally prefer.

Based on reviews online and other places, I picked Gorilla wood glue.

Gorilla wood glue is just PVA, not sure if it has any benefits over cheap brand PVA's or if you just pay for the name.
