how to repair a broken piece of press board its an end piece on a cabinet? Answered

The best way I have found to make a repair, as opposed to replacing, is to clean and remove any loose material on the broken edges. Then glue and/or fasten the broken piece back into its original position. Fill the gap with Bondo (automotive body putty) sand, then try to touch it up to match the existing finish. This is fairly easy if the surface is painted, but if it is a wood grain finish, it helps to have some artistic skills to conceal the repair.
