I have a heavy chest made out of veneered particle board. A friend tried to
move it by pulling up on the top, and the top just ripped off, taking some
of the particle board with it.
I would like to fix it up, but am not sure how. I don't want to fill the
holes because drilling new holes accurately would be tough, but I can't
think of any way to repair the particle board except by filling the whole
thing with epoxy putty.
Or maybe it is an exercise in futility because any patch will have
inadequate bonding to the particle board to matter.
Will drywall screws hold in particle board? Maybe I should use completely
new holes and not bother to fix the old ones.
