Which glue for stair treads?11/9
I have been approached to provide 5/4 Oak interior stair treads for this house I'm doing cabinets for.
Question: Is Titebond 2 up to this task?
Thanks in advance.
Most stair guy's I have seen use liquid nails. PVA glue has two strikes against it for this application. 1) Not gapfilling. 2) stiff and might crack. IMO
If you are talking about making the treads, then any wood glue is stronger than the wood when properly edge glued.
I believe Joel is referring to installing stairs in the house. It has become industry standard to use construction adhesive for gluing in the wedges, etc.
I thought Richard was referring to making the treads not installing them. That being the case never use liquid nails or the like. We've always used Original Titebond. This assumes correct gluing procedure. We just finished another stair using the same procedure. Glue lines are right off the SL rip saw. Taylor clamp rack, dead simple. PS we meter our incoming wood.
