    Default Making frames with Tight Bond III

    I was using Tight Bond III to make some oak picture frames recently and had to take one apart, the glue was so strong it took pieces wood off at every joint. The glue is stronger than the wood (oak). I have also use Tight Bond II and Gorilla wood Glue with the same results.

    With glue this strong is it even necessary to nail/staple the frames together?

    Does anyone use only glue on their frames?

    I made 100 foundationless deep frames with only glue for swarm boxes and they seem very strong and very quick to make. Should I test them to see how much weight the bottom rail can support? Anyone up for a competition nails vs. glue?

    The glue is stronger, but using only nails allows you to replace any part that might be damaged, rather than scrapping the whole frame. I use both and try not to break stuff. (if it's worth doing, overdo it )

    I think you do. Just in case you don't get that glue in there correctly, those nails act as a backup.

    A few brads in there will also help keep everything square while the glue sets up.

    I feel like the nails hold the frames until the glue dries....

    From the Titebond FAQ section:
    What is the clamping and drying time of Titebond Wood Glues?

    For most of our wood glues, we recommend clamping an unstressed joint for thirty minutes to an hour. Stressed joints need to be clamped for 24 hours. We recommend not stressing the new joint for at least 24 hours. For Titebond Polyurethane Glue, we recommend clamping for at least forty-five minutes. The glue is completely cured within 6 hours.
