Hello and greetings to the group. (My apology if this posts twice, I am
having trouble with the server.)
I am embarking on a project and I have a question about glue. I believe
I already know the answer, but wanted to confirm.
Is there any reason that two boards glued face-to-face with tradional
yellow glue would not provide a strong enough and permanent bond for a
vertical load bearing member of a bed?
I am using air dried walnut from central Indiana to build a bunk bed
such as this one http://plansnow.com/bunkcloser.html
The plans specify using boards 1 and 1/16 thick but I can only get about
3/4" thick after I plane them. With that in mind, my intent is to glue
two pieces together to yield a 1.5" board and then plane that down as
Is this sufficient for a 20 to 50 year span and beyond? Should I
consider any different adhesive?
For the horizontal rails, there are a few thicker boards available.
