My Bro & I are starting to build our own equipment and I got to thinking about Liquid Nails. Has anyone tried using it instead of wood glue? Will it work or will it cause the joints to be too ridgid not allowing the boards to expand and contract enough in the joint areas. Would it be harmfull to the bees in anyway if used. I havent compared the $ of it compared to wood glue so even if it would work it may not be worth the price.

Have heard of it, but never used it.  If it is exterior rated, shouldn't be a problem.  I use polyurethane or titebond waterproof.

  Liquid nails is similar to Titebond.  I use it for building (floor systems ect.).  It would be a good product to use.  I would let it cure for about a day before placing it in a hive.  It can be painted over after it cures and it also keeps the joints nice and tight.
 
I would say good product and would use it!

I prefer the titebond or the elmers exterior glues.  I have used liquid nails.  It works.  It oozes out and has to be aired out a lot longer to get rid of the fumes.  I think the titebond is cheaper.

I have been using gorilla glue for assembling boxes and frames.  I like the fact that it expands and fills the glue joint.

If I had liquid nails laying around, I might use it.  If I were buying glue, I'd buy the Titebond II.
