    Used Liquid Nails... Uh oh

    Well I started my box build yesterday. I put a couple sides on using only Liquid Nails. Now, it looks alright to me, but after doing that I read quite a few ppl on here hatin on liquid nails and saying to ONLY use liquid nails instead. So, should I knock off the 3 sides I attached, clean them a lil, and reattach with the magical Titebond? or just precede as I am, hoping the liquid nails holds?
    btw, I will be bracing it some if that matters

    It should be fine. Just do the rest with woodglue.

    are you using clamps or screws

    I havent touched the stuff in a long time but iirc the bottle says not to use it on mdf, but people do and I guess it'll work just fine with the added support of screws. I'd suggest just using Titebond II from now on though.

    if it is a small box then i would just proceed but if its more than a couple tens or twelves might reconsider

    I lol'd before even opening this thread, I just read the title. I've blown boxes apart when I used liquid nails. Titebond II won't let you down.

    I always used Elmer's Wood Glue, screwed together and then sealed with caulk. Never did me wrong.

    But then I never did anything outrageously involved.



    And now... now, what joy will I have left to live for?

    its about 4.5 cubes gross. simple box for 2 12s. going to use aeroports. I guess I'll continue on and see what happens. If it does blow up or fall apart I guess I'll just make another one. Not too hard or expensive really.

    It actually work great. I prefer wintergreen over cinnamon. It holds much better.

    I think it looks fairly sturdy to me, just all the hate on here towards liquid nails had me reconsidering.
