Re: Glue for teak, interior cabinetry

Tightbond III or epoxy or waterproof whiteglue.

They all work. With epoxy you do not need to clamp tight as you want "more glue." Which actually makes it harder to clean-up.

I would use tightbond III and clamp tight with finely milled joints. Immediately wipe all excess glue and then you'll have to sand or scrape very little although as mentioned if you have little squeeze out just let it dry and scrape after drying. Epoxy is messy and unneccessary for an interior table and the glue joints will be bigger than needed for furniture.

JMHO of course

Come on!

Finely fitted joints for Titebond. And big, loose joints for epoxy? Just to emphasize how hard and messy and unnecessary (and unsightly!) it is? Please!
