If you look at product labels I believe that Titebond 2 is called water “resistant” while Titebond 3 is water “proof”.

Good luck with your boards.

TB2. Unless you are amused by all the blah blah about different glues. If its wet or outdoors – epoxy worked for me on my Lake Superior boat for over 15 yrs. Everything else—one or two years. (exposed to weather year around). Epoxy is the best. s

PCM;

Good choice! Of the Titebonds we only use TB 3. Best local price I have found is HD.

Like the good open time of it also.

Renners, it honestly looks like you are trying to start an argument.

I was mearly pointing out that Titebond 2 is water proof too. If you follow the link I posted in my first post. Read the top, it says “We have found 5 products that match your search for the ‘Cutting boards and other applications requiring FDA approval for indirect contact’ application”.
If you click on those bottles you will see that they say on the label “waterproof”. Showing the facts to try to help the OP is not starting an argument. I posted to help the OP, you… I don’t see much in the way of helping anyone.

Please I appologize to all of you that Some people can’t help but drag silly things into other posts. Please forgive me and my rude followers.

Ken, I was only joking, honestly.

I posted that, tongue firmly in cheek, after reading your comment on the “how to start an argument” thread.
No malice was intended and I apologise if it was taken in a way that it wasn’t meant to be taken.

Hey Ken;

Not going to get between you and Renners spat but, there is a difference between TB 2 water “resistant ” and the TB 3 water “proof”.

That is part of justification in higher price for TB 3.

Just my two cents worth.

OH CRUD, my appologizes, I need to get my eye’s checked that label says WEATHERproof, not WATER proof…. I am so sorry, I was terribly wrong. My eye’s and mind are playing tricks on me, I saw the WTR portions of the word Weather on that label… No excuses…. Sorry
