CRICKET BAT FACE, EDGE GLUE DOWN AND CLEAN UP
English willow will crack at every stage of it's life. It is a natural product doing not very natural things. Over time it can crack a little too much, you can lose bits off the face/edge or the entire face can start to de-laminate.
The good news is that we can fix it. We do this by gluing & clamping down the loose bits of willow then sanding & polishing once the glue is dry.
