    I used titebond II on my box and it worked pretty well.

    Re: Best Glue For Wood

    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.
