I’m building a custom mantle for my house. In order to keep the weight of the mantle down, I’m using MDF crown moulding for it. The crown is also what I used for the room so it will all match up.
The top shelf will be a clear 1″x8″x7′ long piece of pine. What are you recommendations for glueing the mdf to the pine (the pine is unprimed and the mdf is preprimed)?
The glue I have elmers and titebond fast set wood glue both absorb into the cut ends of the mdf. I was wondering, for the non-cut edge (that contacts the prime) is wood glue even the right thing to use?
I also have used Locktite’s Grabit(?) latex construction adhesive to mount small pieces of trim. Would this be the right adhesive to use along with some brad nails?
