    Hi guys,

    What would be the best glue to use on MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard)? I have a 1/2" thick piece, and I need to create a 3/4" thick piece so I was going to glue three layers together.

    Thanks,

    Eric

    Good old wood glue. Tite-Bond or Elmers brands.

    The wood will rip apart before the bond will give.

    I personally like Gorilla Glue, it's really strong stuff.

    I've used pl800 in the past and works great.

    I have used Titebond with great success on MDF.
    I built six home theater speakers a while ago and all the front panels are two 1/2" MDF panels laminated together.

    Did the same thing with my 12" HT sub woofer too. The entire box is laminated to 1" like the other speakers. It's heavy and really rocks the house when the ATATs close in on the rebels in ESB.
