What is the best glue to use to glue acrylic to wood? Some of the clear acrylic shows any flaws the glue may create.

I have used both products for years and each has great holding strength and limited use. Epoxy will weaken if heated, such as sanding on a lathe. CA is sometimes a mystery to me. I've tried it on jewelry, metal, wood, etc. The only sure thing about it is that it will ALWAYS glue your fingers to themselves or other objects. Sometimes it just plain don't work. After a period of time it dries up and the tube/container frozen in place. Yes, I still use both, but now know how to use each.

 

Has anyone tried plastic body filler? It can be colored too.

No, but I have used body glaze from a tube as filler  on wood I am going to paint. It sands smooth and drys fast, gives a super smooth surface.

 

I have had the same experience as Ron with CA glue until I bought a spray can of accelerator now I get a good fast set on the glue, wear rubber gloves.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
