I always use elmers (or equivalent) white glue. They're milk based, and are
safe for food items. As long as your not doing a soak in hot water, the glue
will hold. Long exposure to water can make it let go.....
I've got a couple in my kitchen that Im ade 5-6 years ago, and they're
holding together fine...
make a rather large cutting/chopping board. What is the
Heh. Casein glue is. White glue is a form of polyvinyl acetate, and there just
ain't many cows giving off major amounts of that.

I dun think so, Titebond 2 is "water resistance" and TItebond 3 is "water
Woodcraft stock Titebond 3 last week, I bought a bottle to try, and the
saleperson asked me to let him know the result after I use it.
Hmmm...I smell a Product Test in the offing. We've got T1, 2 and 3 at
the shop, so mebbe I'll glue up some test joints and see how they fair
under various (wet) conditions.
I'm thinking about gluing several sets of two .75x2x6" boards
together with a 3" overlap. I'll then let the boards cure for at
least the recommended time period and then soak them for a period of
time. Last step will be to clamp one in a vise and figure out some
way of testing the load limit.... Any suggestions? I'd prefer to
have somewhat meaningful results.
One suggestion comes to mind here. Instead of simply a load limit, a failure
under constant stress might (maybe) apply more. I'm thinking of three
exaggerated cauls, each glued together, then a screw threaded in one piece
applying tension against the other. You could then leave them soak for days or
weeks, checking once in a while. The idea here (unlike the load limit) is that
the water will first soften the exposed glue line, and subsequent stress will
cause that part of the bond to fracture, allowing water to penetrate further
and repeat the process.
In either case, I'd be very interested in your results.
Please post your results as I am quite interested in them. I am looking for the best
glue for this application and can asfford to
wait. My goal is to have it completed by late august when the tomatoes, jalepinos
and tomatillos are ripe and ready for salsa
