I'm trying to fix a small crack on a conga drum of mine. It was submerged in water and developed a crack that runs perpendicular to the wood grain. It isn't deep at all. I've searched for information on how to fix it, but I can't find anything.
The crack is about 1.25" long, on the curve of the drums belly, and on the other side of the wood are scoring lines that the builder put in.The drum is made of quartersawn oak.
I was thinking about lightly sanding the crack out, but I'm a little worried that the wood will be too thin as the crack runs along the scoring.
I've attached a photo. Thanks for any help!
