Everyone like pictures. What I glued today before I had to go in to work. I'm using loctite PL. I have wood glue also, haven't used it yet. Any guidance on which adhesive to use or what is stronger bonding?

PL expands, which is helpful if you don't have the greatest cuts, but wood glue is equally as strong-- it just won't fill any gaps for you.

Sounds Good to Me... keeping track of my audio projects.

The goal is to end up with a panel that is 1 1/4" thick. It doesn't matter if the 1/2" piece is outside or inside.

Have you read the 'official' build threads?

BTW - here is my build thread for the Statement Monitors.

Thanks. Yes I have read 100s of pages of builds. Haven't read any monitor builds yet. They may hold the little secrets I've been missing. Hoping this weekend I can get 1 cabinet close. Only thing got me thinking now is how to clamp the top and bottom down while the glue dries. Maybe let the weight of the box hold it?
