I'm a fan of spraying on contact cement. Specifically dap weldwood contact cement. When used properly the stuff doesn't come unstuck :)

I like to use carpet adhesive. Like the stuff they use for floors.

The spray adhesives work well and are really easy to use, but contact cement is generally cheaper. If you've got an air compressor you can get a cheap paint gun from home depot and spray the contact cement. It's the best of both worlds in my opinion, but if you're only looking at doing one or two boxes it isn't worth the money.

If you use contact cement stick to the original flamable kind. The other ***** a$$ :)

I have not had too much luck with contact cement.

I like to use a hot glue gun.
I never had luck with those adhesives and cements.

The trick to contact cement is all in the prep and how it's applied. I'm just an old stuck in the mud fuddy duddy. I find something that works for me and stick with it :D :)
