    How strong is Wood Glue?

    How much weight do you think it can support? [Pulling on it]

    I don't have any weights to test this.

    Does anyone have a link to where they test different glues to weight on different kinds of surfaces?

    on plastic and crap im sure it works better.

    wood glue was made for WOOD.


    use the right glue for the job and you wont be disappointed.

    Re: How strong is Wood Glue?

    Well, honestly this was posted in the wrong section 'cause I didn't really know which section to put it in. But I'm building a TV-Stand type of thing and I don't know what to use for the bracing.

    Re: How strong is Wood Glue?

    How much a single joint can hold is not only dependent on the wood glue used but also on the wood used and the surface area that you're applying it to.

    If you're planning on using MDF, that structure will probably not support too much weight and will probably flex over time. MDF isn't really a load bearing wood.

    If you're not putting anything heavy on top, you will probably be fine though. I would worry much more about the wood than the joints. If you're not using MDF and some kind of hardwood, you should be in better shape. Maybe beef up the rear 90* support though; I would probably double its thickness to keep it strong.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I'm not sure which wood to use. I was thinking MDF, but then I realized that all the heat/weight would ROCK it.

    The top shelf will hold an Xbox, controllers, maybe a few games... and, knowing me, cups. It's not back-breaking weight... only about ~25 lbs at most. But the wood itself will be pretty heavy. I might double-up the strips. It's all based around getting 1 or 2 sheets of 3/4" wood. I could upgrade to 1" if necessary. But, I didn't want a like 3" x 2" beam going up since I don't know how to do that. But, I guess I can double up the strips and make 2 strips of 1" thick, then glue them together and have a 1"x1-1/2", or maybe boost it to 2"x1-1/2[or 2-1/4" with three strips]

    What I never thought of was bracing for the shelf that will hold my TV. It's a 27" Tube TV [SDTV lolz... but it's pretty ******. A really good TV for the like $70 bucks I paid for it], so it's pretty bulky and heavy. I'm not sure how heavy exactly.


    Do you suggest a type of wood? I've heard Birch wood was ******... but I'm not sure about it's integrity.

    Re: How strong is Wood Glue?

    I know some one has tested elmers wood glue and the wood breaks before the bond breaks, so I guess it would be strong enough.



    EVERYONE has common sense, but its the stupid ones who dont follow it.

    I would get tightbond though. As that seems to be stronger. Both did the same thing. But still I like to work with tight bond more.
