How to fix broken table top without any tools – DIY tutorial

Repairing broken furniture without tools

DIY-tutorial_fix-broken-table-top-without-tools_banner

Before the start I have to clarify some facts.

First of all: this is not a tutorial about repairing a table top; it is about a top of a dresser.
