    I'm sure it could, as long as it can be clamped tightly until the glue sets. Most wood glue is very strong.
     

  3. If old airplanes were stuck about 1900 with wooden glue why should not still function today, because they fly to share even today!

    Wood glue sometimes gets weak when wet.

    I wouldn't use hot glue, it doesn't bond like other glues but just forms a layer in between the wood

    Looks like a de-personalisation thing "Bb" wants to share.
    There are people calling their feeling about the world being awaked.
    Feeling not much about themselves but a religious thing or a sense for responseability to share this sometimes, feeding people with sophistic nonsense to make them feel the same and forget about themselves

    Ah, hot glue. I don't think that would work very well for a few reasons. Firstly, most hot glue is intended for light-duty applications where a flexible bond is desired. Secondly, I can see big problems when it comes time to carve and sand the laminated sections. The heat produced will likely reactivate the hot glue and leave you with a nasty mess. And its likely to just fall apart as well.
    I would 'stick' with epoxy or good quality waterproof wood glue.

    ah
    hotglue

    you can destroy it by pulling on it
    and it cools down too fast

    so you have an bigger piece at the other side and a lower piece on the other

    and it could damage the wood
    but just at the parts you don´t see :)

    i say nope to hotglue

    but yes to wood glue :)

    Yeah guys,even cheap wood glue is far better than hot glue for anything even mildly serious. Like mentioned, it bonds nothing worth the time spent plugging in the gun... Even cheep decorative crafts or Christmas ornaments fall apart sitting untouched! In a pinch (desperate survival mode!) pine pitch would be superior to that crap
