I suppose that Gorilla Glue is like anything else: you have to use it right to get good results. I did not. I am confident that I have a good bond, but I also have extruded glue that makes the hive look terrible. (As a hobbiest, I still worry about that sort of thing). It takes very little glue, and really I think it would need to be put on with a brush to evenly distribute the material. It expands to 3x 4x its original voulume during its cure, and this is the reason for it coming out of the joints and looking unsightly. I have experience with wood glue, and I thing that such a product along with nails (or staples) will work fine. IN the future, that is what I will use.
