Fingerboard glue


#1

Hello,
I am going to start making my own fingerboards, but I am having trouble deciding which glue to use. Any suggestions?


#2

Gorilla glue or any yellow wood glue. The key is a thin layer of glue and good clamping pressure.


#3

Just buy a bunch of different ones and find out which one you like the best. It’s really the only way to know.


#4

Do you mean standard gorilla glue or gorilla wood glue?


#5

Both, although most companies use standard gorilla glue.

I’ve tried lots over the years, always gravitated towards regular wood glue though. I’ve used epoxies too, I can’t stand the smell though and imo didn’t get wildly better results.

Lately been using this:

And every deck I’ve done is solid. It has saw dust or something like that mixed into it, different to the Tightbond I’ve used in the past.
