As much as I would like to enter this I wont because I dont think cutting boards count (Cause they have always been a glue only assembly). But I will say this I only use Gorilla PVA wood glue I switched after 15 years of using Tightbond III

Martin, One last question, Can the different Gorilla glues be mixed??, meaning being used in different parts of the project…

I’ve sat out of the last few challenges… but I actually have something in mind, and just needed the nudge to give it a go. – doesn’t matter that I’ve already won a (luck of the draw) Gorilla contest, right? ;)

Neil, when you approach a gorilla with your bottle of glue, do it confidently; they can sense apprehension in your glue-up.

Does gorilla glue make other varieties aside from the foamy gobbledy gook producing variety? Like a yellow glue equivalent? I honestly don’t know.

@KnifeLife Sure, cutting boards count. Just make sure you build one for this project showing all the photos needed.

@Delta356 No problem using different Gorilla Glues in different areas of your project

@scottb It doesn’t matter if you’ve entered and won a contest before, you can enter this one.

@Steven H Any project using Gorilla Glue as your main fastener with no metal fasteners is valid.

Thanks guys!

This might be a dumb question but it says… “6 random winners” does that means anybody who glues two sticks together have the same chances of winning as someone who creates a master piece? just curious about that.
