Elmers wood glue, **** works pretty **** good. Use that plus MDF dust to fill in screw holes and splits too.

I tested the stength of some wood glues and the Loctite Wood Worx glue was the best, much stronger than the titebond II i used, although with both the wood broke before the joint so it doesnt really matter

the Wood Worx is a little thicker and easier to work with than the titebond stuff....

If the wood broke before the joint on both of them how can you say the glue is stronger? At this point you would be saying the wood on the Worx glue was stronger than the wood on the titebond test sample.

Because when i tested it, i used less and less glue until i was able to notice a difference in the two.

i use titebond as well, however, i have used gorilla glue in the past for boxes and the ***** is strong as hell. very ugly, but strong. works great if you're gluing 2 different materials together, such as plexi to wood or metal to wood.

i did the same by gluing 1x2's end to end. i pretty much got the same results from titebond 2, titebond 3, and elmers.

dont use anything other than a dedicated WOOD GLUE for bonding WOOD to WOOD.



dont use construction adhesive or liquid nails or any of that crap. wood glue has been proven to be stronger. period.

wow im suprised no one has given the correct answer yet....

Titebond Molding and Trim glue is your best bed, it is designed for materials like MDF that would like to absorb the glue hence it is much thicker. Also because it is thicker also makes it so it wont run...

There is no actual correct answer if you want to get down to brass tacks of it.

There are all different kinds of adhesives / glues that are formulated to be used given the project for their use and to be quite honest, it's more about the preference of what glue someone likes to use and the results they had using it.

Subfloor adhesive IS made for wood to wood use. It bonds OSB plywood to joists(made of 2x4's), so I don't see how you think it's a bad thing to use. Not to mention it also is able to bond FRONZEN and/or WET wood...that's hardcore stuff right there. I've compared it to some Titebond products and the subfloor adhesive by Dap is better...from my experience. Hardens quicker, also.

I've tried a few different products for adhesive, and have just stuck with what works the best for me...

x3, like I said when your using a quality wood glue it doesnt really matter the brand, the wood will break before the joint

glue sticks work pretty good. They also taste good and are a very good source of Vitamin D, B and portien.

i say you do use sub floor adhesive or liquid nails. be sure to run your fingers down all the corners to smooth out the glue. try mixing gorilla glue and PLC sub floor adhesive together. we should have a medical section on the forum.

Use a wood glue such as Titebond or Elmers. Do NOT use an adhesive. It just "sticks" the panels together, whereas the wood glue will bond it.
