I just ran across this trolling youtube. Might work for small dings, cracks etc etc on boards and foils.

How about no? CA degrades over time and baking soda really isn't a strong filler. Maybe you'd do this if your were stuck in some third world country and it's all that was available, but since any hardware store has epoxy why not just do it right the first time?

Better to use a modified silane polymer based adhesive.
