About those glues.
Gluing anything can be a challenge, much less gluing wood to tile.
When I first started this I used liquid nail. Just the straight up stuff and it worked.
Glue, weight, wait, hang.
Then one day I did this and it would not stay.
Glue, weight, wait, hang, un-glue, I would find the tiles hanging by just one side.
I looked for another product to use.
I went to gorilla glue.
Anyone who has worked with gorilla glue knows how tedious it can be.
It expands and when it expands it is messy.
I was spending way too much time on the messy part of this, even though the glue worked well.
In fact, it worked great, but I hated the mess of working with it.
I found a liquid nail, small projects, clear, that worked even better.
All I had to do was clean, set, weight, and they were done.
No fuss, no mess.
We were golden.
Until 2 weeks ago when I ran out.
I looked high and low for what I had been using. Then out of desperation I bought the ones in the last post.
What turned out to work for me was the liquid nail that was white and also labeled for small projects and home repairs.
I felt that it worked more like a product for setting tile.
What it reminded me of was using a tile setting products such as thin set. I like it, but it is a tad fussy until it sets up.
The other one I bought I found smelly and messy.
I might use that one for smaller projects, but for the tiles I liked the liquid nail better.
I know that this is all subject to change.
New and improved!
Nothing stays the same.
Is there a better way?
I am wondering that as well.
When I make tiles mine are more the thickness of commercial tiles.
I don't like the cut on the back to hang them on a nail, I just never felt that method was all that stable.
I like bring them out from the wall and giving them a good solid place to hang.
We are helping with the girls when we can.
I like to think that baby loving is a top priority.
They are growing fast, like spring wild flowers.
