Got myself into trouble...NEED ADVICE ASAP
After work (I bounce) me and about 10 other people went to start our night over at my parents house who had gone out of town. I live in a city about 30 minutes away from work and my parents live right down the street from the bar so we decided to go there. Turns out that someone broke the pantry cabinet door, as well as some other shitty things, but that seems to be the big problem that I need fixed. The only thing is that I am having a hard time finding a place that has what I need -- my parents already know so it is not like it has to be a perfect match. It just needs to look good. Anyone got any ideas on where to go?

Lowes, homedepot. Call a place specializing in cabinets possibly.

I know...it is quite the crisis...jk...its just that a lot of other shit got ****ed up and this is one thing that I am having a hard time finding a fix. Its not the end of the world, but I am already sick of hearing my parents bitch.
As far as the glue is concerned....tried and failed...it is pretty much just broken.
I went to lowes and home depot and they dont have anything really like that.

So, you need a special hinge or the cabinet door? If it's a hinge, try doing a search for hinges, or if you can find the mark of the maker of the hinge you can search them.
If it's the door, you're going to have to talk with local cabinet shops to custom make you one that looks like the old one did.

Yeah i need the whole door...but to make the story even funnier is the fact that someone looked through my toiletry bags and I had yesterdays inject in there...dont know if anyone saw it but this just keepts better and better.

It may be simpler to just replace all the hinges with new ones. Then, you don't have to find a match to the old. How badly is the door broke? If the wood is relatively undamaged, no prob. If the hinge tore out where it doesn't show, just get some filler such as red hand, JB weld, or any epoxy type filler, stuff it up, let it set, and sand it down flush, then drill your screw holes. You can find or mix paint or stain to match. Hit the whole thing with a new coat of varnish and you are good to go, Girlfriend. Better than new!
With varnish, you must be careful not to introduce bubbles. When you work from the original can and you wipe the excess from your brush on the rim of the can, it makes bubbles, because of the way the rim is made. Better to pour a working amount into a clean vegetable or soup can. That rim will not make so many bubbles. Tack cloth first, Girl! You don't want a dusty surface! Hit it when it is dry with some 000 steel wool, then the tack cloth again, then a final coat of varnish. Keep the dust down! Don't let people come in and out, making drafts that blow dust around.
Elmer's is nowhere nearly as good as Gorilla Glue. I love that stuff! Sometimes I piddle around and build furniture. My next project is a maple table. I love the close grain of maple... much preferred by me to the more traditional oak, with it's open grain. I am looking at about $3000 in just the wood, though. Good wood is hard to find, Girlfriend!

I would have went into a panic then burnt the place down so they would not have know I was there.

I don't understand... I was simply pointing out that good wood is hard to find, and you seem to have taken it the wrong way. Do you have a filthy mind, or something? Obsesses with sex? Hmpfh. YOU will never get to take ME out to dinner, you lecherous butt-bandit.
