Probably Plaster of Paris. Seem to be two schools of thought on this - one says P-o-P and the other says Bee's Wax. If someone says Bondo - throw them out and don't let them get near your table. The beauty of P-o-P or Bee's Wax is the impermanence of it, so the table can be broken down and set-up again. Bondo you'd have to sand off the slates.

The glue is probably just a 3M spray type glue to help hold the cloth until you can get a staple in it. It's just an aid, not a device onto itself. Good luck with your move.

Adios,

My table was delivered and set up yesterday, they stretched and stapled all the way around, no glue of any type. Not sure what he filled the cracks with, he put a little pile of it (powder - sort of a light tan color) on the slate and put water in the middle of the pile and used a putty knife to mix it. after filling the screw holes and cracks between the slate he then sanded it smooth. The table is an Olhausen bought new from a local dealer (A.E. Schmidt, I'm not sure if I spelled their name right). They do good work and I understand this is the correct way to put a table together. No more leaving the house to shoot /ccboard/images/icons/laugh.gif
