I saw some of this stuff at my hardware store today and picked a 4 oz bottle. The people working there, had no idea how well it worked since they just brought it in. So I was wondering, is this stuff any good? It will be used to make my sub boxes. I only paid $5 for it.

it's alright stuff but not ideal for enclosure bonding. the stuff when applied properly per directions will cause the glue to "bubble" up and expand. it is pretty strong stuff yes, but you are much better off using Titebond II.

Gorilla glue itself is bad I would imagine. But Gorilla now makes Gorilla Wood Glue, is that what we're talking about here or the original stuff?

It was only $5 then. So no big loss then.

I have used it to make a few boxes. If you put 45's in and you dont have a table saw it works great imo.

Patron saint of sticking MDF together. Gorilla glue foams up, not the best for MDF, I dont use it and I dont know anyone who does.

x2 I used that on everything. I was framing for 5 years in the past and managed to acquire several tubes that where left over from jobs. I rarely used the common household wood glue.

I always had problems with boxes blowing apart when i would use liquid nails. Gorilla glue is better than liquid nails, but titebond is better than both.
