Limitations Titebond II Premium Wood Glue is not for continuous submersion or for use below the waterline. Not for structural or load bearing applications. Do not use when temperature, glue or materials are below 55°F. Freezing may not affect the function of the product but may cause it to thicken. Agitation should restore product to original form. Because of variances in the surfaces of treated lumber, it is a good idea to test for adhesion. Read MSDS before use. KEEP FROM FREEZING. KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.

I used the guidelines in the product specs and used clamps. I called them and they told me that the clamp pressure noted was needed for "COMPLETE" bonding to occur- whatever that is, so I used clamps. I would have used screws, but I did not want to deal with split wood or router problems.
