WD, I've heard a similar question but the flip side................."you're going to use glue AND nails!  You don't really need the nails!"

WOW !! That is a bunch of warpage. Try to lay it with the warped end down and lay a thick water saturated towel on the raw wood inside for at least 4-5 days keeping it plenty wet. It would help if it was hot water. Then turn it with the warped side up and set something HEAVY on top  for a few days if you do not own clamps that could be used to draw it in over a couple of days.

a catch 22, I guess or maybe I hit a sensitive nerve when I nailed  it together 

The pieces that bowed are solid pine, this is the worst one. I did use it with shims to hold the frames in place right under the top cover for awhile. I've been letting it soak in all this wonderful rain we've been having.  It's old enough now to take it apart and attempt a repair.

Was a little surprised on how strong the joints are as is but managed to pull the piece off today with no damage, a new piece won't fit do to swelling, will give it a few days see if it straightens out any with some pressure.

wd; while it's apart cut several saw kerfs top to bottom on the inside surface maybe 1/4 - 3/8" deep and 1 1/2" apart. Then just nail a cleat on the outside to pull it straight.

So which brand Glue is the preferred choice? Didn't mean to change the topic...



a cleat on the outside, now why didn't I think of that ... is that suck it in or is that out -

Thanks fish_stix

WD, I've heard a similar question but the flip side................."you're going to use glue AND nails!  You don't really need the nails!"

nails or screws seem more secure to me though I see the principle.

I only use Glues that are FDA aproved for indirect food contact. Tight bond II is gorilla glue is not but I don't think it will hurt. also price wise Gorilla is to costly. Tight bond II works great in water after its dry I made cutting boards with it that have been through the dish washer hundreds of times.

Though I think I'll be sticking with nails / screws one can add laminated beams, plywood, etc to the list of just using some sort of adhesive.

Are 44 screws an overkill when you are using glue?  Of course, 44 nails are a lot as well.

Thoughts?

In my boxes, if there's a pre-drilled hole, I stick a nail in it.  I like knowing that it would take a tank to break my boxes and not wonder if it will come apart on me when I have 20,000 bees inside.  It's most likely overkill, but it gives me the warm n' fuzzy.  :-D
