    A good Loctite glue should work.

    Hi Pearline, I agree with Dee about Loctite glue; also Gorilla glue is good. If you can, get a syringe to inject the glue into the crack (ask at the hardware store) and clamping it might be a good idea to get it to hold real well while the glue hardens. Good luck!

    Locktite won't work. Gorilla wood glue expands as it dries. Clamping is a must and scraping the squeeze out once it's dry. I personally don't like Gorilla glue. I like to use Titebond Wood Glue. With your headboard I would use Titebond II wood glue and clamps or anything for clamps.

    I love Gorilla glue, but agree with William, it does expand as it dries. I would either use wood glue, or E6000. (This stuff glues everything!)

    Either way, you'll definitely want to clamp it to dry, and clean off any glue on the surface while its still wet.

    If you don't have clamps, you can use belts or rope to hold it tight. Put a piece of wax paper under tge belt or rope where it touches any glued area to be sure it doesn't stick!
