I am working on my dollhouse and wanted an opinion from the crowd before I go ahead and start gluing things. I have Titebond and if you all think that will work for this, I’ll use it. But if not—I’m not attached to the idea.
The “subfloor” is MDF. The “floor boards” are various hardwoods. They are 1/8” thick and about 1/2” wide, in lengths up to 4”. Due to the way the house is set up, I have to install the floorboards into the rooms, finished. I can’t clamp them down, though I can use painter’s tape as needed. I do not need to be terribly liberal with my application of glue, since it’s not actually structural or anything.
My concerns are mainly:
1) Will the glue warp the wood? Since the wood is thin, I’m not sure if it would or not. Any experience with wood this thin, in this kind of application?
I AM planning on doing an entire room at a time – probably an entire storey. I will have all of the wood ready before I start applying anything sticky.
