I am in the process of building some fishing nets with four 3/32 to 1/8” thick, 3/4” wide strips for the hoop lamination. I have epoxy, plastic resin, and polyurethane glues. I talked to a net maker and he told me that he was applying Gorilla glue to the strips right out of the steambox and then on to the clamping form. This would obviously save a bunch of time.
The Gorilla website recommended against this to avoid creep. Would these small of strips be prone to creep? Any input from wood benders appreciated

The trick with the gorilla glue in that application would be not
to apply too much. Put in too much and it will be all over the
place, but put in just enough and it will stay where you want
it. Of course the darned stuff expands, so you’ve got to plan
for that.

Have your say...
