  1. That’s funny because I just heard last week to not use Super Glue on this kind of project because it’s been failing after 10 years or so and to stick with tried and true PVC or the Titebond III types. What’s the truth on this topic? Hard to know sometimes.

  2. I do a bit of turning and I experiment with laminate timbers of contrasting colours what kind of glue should I use I have been using pvc glue with good results but I was told they give way in time is this true.

    • We’ve not heard of pvc glue failing over time and it is a common glue used by cabinet makers so it should last for a really long time. The most common glues used in segmenting are Titebond Wood Glue and Gorilla Glue. However, glues for applications like this are not our specialty so I would say if it is working for you, keep using it!
