Frequent damages:

When particleboard gets wet, it can swell or even disintegrate. This depends mainly on the type of particle board and level of water (or other liquid) exposure. 



If the hinge screws have broken out of a cabinet door and taken chunks of the particleboard with them…..screwing them back will simply not work: ) One can use a glue, or some kind of screw inserts…

Here, is shown how to build a DIY 4 Channel Temperature Data Logger Arduino Uno

Cracked particleboard



This is quite unfortunate damage. But also possible to repair. I plan to make a tutorial on this also… 

Scratched particleboard

This is quite frequent “soft” damage. It is possible to repair. I plan to make a tutorial on this also…
