    Lauan Corner Repair

    So I’ve got a couple sheets of 4’x8’ 1/4 lauan but some of the corners are busted up. I’d love to not have to buy new sheets because I’m on a fairly tight budget. Any tips for repairing the corners without a new sheet. I need them to be completely flush but they will be painted.
