How bad is this edge damage?

Recommended Posts

It depends on if it is a crack, or just a bit missing. Assuming it were a crack, I would massage glue into it and leave it overnight with a closing cramp on, then the day after fill it with carnubra wax

Yes what Jacob said, fyi "briwax" which is made for furniture and other woodwork has a variety of colors, one of which being a walnut brown, should work pretty well for a quick fix. To do an actually physical invisible repair with a color match would be very expensive, the hide glue smoosh should prevent any "runners" and the wax will fill the gap...tip, smoosh the wax in and leave it proud, let it dry and use a rag to level it, less likely to dimple that way.

I would suggest cleaning the crack well with some precise instrument to work a wee alcohol in the crack in order to dissolve any contaminants that may prevent glue bond, very precise.But it would be a good idea to get the glue to span the gap between the two in order to fuse the two areas together, less likely to be a  problem if it snags some clothing or something like that.
