After watching Scott Phillips on tv I got increasingly interested In this Gorilla glue. I picked up a small bottle and tryed on the first project I could. It was a box with I actualy sold so I never got to post It on here. It was made with curly maple. So a fairly standard wood.
I spread A healthy amount on each miter and brushed it out. I made this box with no splines because I wanted to put this glue to the test. And boy did I.
First the day after glue up I was outside brushing lacquer onto it and it was a VERY VERY windy day. The wind literally picked up the box and carried it through my front yard. The box bounced off the lawn 3 times before landing. Not the slightest bit of movement to the corners. Rock solid. Just grass stains haha
That weekend I was at a craft fair with this box. The first day it absolutely POURED rain and my boxes were exposed to the wet element. Now I am in no way bashing titebond here and I hope it doesnt get taken that way but I have to say a box I have glued together with titebond 2 and I got some separation but the Gorilla glued box remained rock solid.
The next day of the fair showed clearing skys and intense heat. Once again the gorilla glued box stood the test of time through the heat. It was purchased the following week and remained rock hard.
All in all I have completely switched over to Gorilla glue and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quality adhesive
