Have to do a repair to some outdoor woodwork (fence parts mostly). The wood is old, going a little bit soft and screws/nails will probably not hold well on their own. I know it's a bit of a bodge job and it will need to be replaced but it's not the best time of year and there is a baby on the way so the plan is to tidy it up and squeeze a little more life out of it.

I am guessing something polyurethane based as they cure with moisture, all suggestions appreciated though.

Many options as I see it.

If possible cut out the bad material. Or use a wood hardener first. Use a bolt to go right through to the other side.

If the wood is not strong enough to hold a screw then I doubt it is up to just a bit of glue on the surface.

Hope that helps

From what I have been told it's only a bit of cosmetic capping that is loose, nothing structural. Not seen the job yet but I am imagining there is not a lot to fix into based on the last little repair I did.

If I was asked to do a job like that I would use something like this;

It has a high initial grab and can be used on wet surfaces so it will do the job even on some crappy wood.
