The plans called for 1/2" balsa along the top and 1/4 and 3/16" balso along the bottom.

I improvised and used laminated 1/4 inch along the top.

Most of the Fuse was constructed with Weldbond. After I had it all clampted together for a trial fit though, I realized that it was so nicely aligned that I didn't want to take it apart. So I dusted off the bottle of Super-Phatic that I've had for some time and gave it a try.

It seemed to work very well. The second photo shows how it sort of wicks into the wood as others have said. You definitely need a tight joint for this glue, but other than that I am pleased with it..
