Default Any Sugestions?

What type of adheasive should I use to bond laster cut pieces together with? I've looked around and seen alot of different glues, but I still don't know what to use. Could anyone sugest what is the strongest and least brittle adheasive to use for this situation?

Laser cut balsa? If so med CA works the best. A little accelerator speeds up the process a little also.
laser cut lite ply also works well with med CA. Laser cut hard ply needs epoxy.later daveo

yep, CA works wonders. Regular Wood glue (alphatic; carpenter's glue, the yellow stuff) works too, just takes longer to cure / dry..

I vote for the yellow, water based wood glue. [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/img] (for most joints)

Some places, CA is a better idea, some places... epoxy.

I use CA on all of my parts. On the laser cut parts, if you are worried about the burnt part of the wood, just lightly sand off the discoloration, it'll be fine.

I use Ca for balsa and epoxy or carpenter's wood glue for plywood or balsa to plywood joints. Never had a failure except when I tried to assemble a spruce fuselage frame with Ca.
