    Titebond won't work for that - you'll need to use fibreglass! :D

    He's probably questioning why he took the effort to remove the back....

    The trick to this kind of repair is in getting the inner plies routed out along the length of the join and cross-grained plies laid in. Probably best if the plies were laid on opposing diagonals. Clamping is a bit of a problem, but if you can manage that the result is some pretty fair firewood.

    If there was an ax in the picture, I would have taken the OP more seriously! :p

    This reminds of of a scene from the days when I worked in a bike shop. A father and son came in for a new chain for the son's BMX bike. They didn't know that you break the chain to remove it, and it's not a big deal to reconnect it. Instead, they cut the frame.
