    Gluing Oily Woods

    What Glue do you use to glue Oily Woods like Teak and Apitong ? Will be outside.

    I've used Weldwood plastic resin glue (resorcinol?) on lignumvitae which every bit as oily has both of those you mentioned although these items were indoor only. I've also hear that they are no longer making it but a store near me had a few containers in stock.

    Rub both sides with acetone and apply Titebond II. That's how we did it in a commercial shop with teak.
