Gluing Port Orford Cedar4/8
I'm doing a quote with Port Orford Cedar. A little online research shows it to be a very workable material.
What I haven't found though is what type of glue to use. I've found references to it working well with glue but not to specific types.
This is a stain grade project so I'm hesitant to just plan on West System epoxy due to the glue lines.
Does anyone have experience with gluing this wood species?
I have had good results with titebond
original , should be no problem except for the smell , good luck .
You don't mention if it is interior, or exterior application? If exterior, I have had better luck gluing with a powdered resin glue like CP Adhesives CP- 0503 product for durability over years of exposure than any of the epoxies I have tried.
These are curved frame components for some high end windows. As such it must be considered an exterior project.
Even better. I also do all my bent laminations with this, as it is a rigid set glue, with no creeping.
Uni bond would work well.....it can be mixed with a light or dark catalyst depending on desired stain color.
